For Peeps' Sake Easter Peek-A-Boo Card &Tutorial

I'm excited to share this adorable Easter Peek-A-Boo Card today.  It was one of the projects we made at my Big Shot workshops last week.  It looks like an ordinary card but watch what happens.....

A hidden panel appears in the oval opening behind the right panel as the card front opens. 

Aren't these chicks cute????  The For Peeps' Sake Stamp Set is one of my favorite stamps in the Occasions Catalog!!!
For Peeps' Sake Stamp Set

Peek-A-Boo Card Tutorial
I made a card using the tutorial I found on splitcoaststampers.  However, I made two changes to mine because I didn't like that the back of my card was not secured according to their instructions.

Here are my measurements:

Crumb Cake Card Stock
  • Front Panel - 4 1/2" x 8 1/4", scored at 2 3/4" (changed from 5 1/2" x 8 1/4")
  • Center Panel - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
  • Back Panel - 5 1/2" x 5 3/4", scored at 5 1/2"
Designer Series Paper
  • Front Panel - 4 1/4" x 5 1/4" & 3/4" x 4" (2 pieces)
  • Center Panel - 4" x 5 1/5" (2 pieces)

By adding two pieces of Sticky Strip (1 1/4" long each) secures the card in place and still allows the slider to move to the right panel. 


Supply List
Stamps - For Peeps' Sake
Paper - Crumb Cake, Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, Best Year Ever DSP
Ink - Memento Black
Markers - Crushed Curry, Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin Pie, Project Life Journal Pens
Tools and Accessories - Boho Blossom Punch, Calypso Coral Ribbon, Jumbo Rhinestones, Sticky Strip
Big Shot - Ovals Collection Framelits, Flower Frenzy
