'Peek A Boo' Easter Card

Hello crafty friends ...

Today I'm on the Your Next Stamp Blog sharing an Easter Card made with some of the fun March release products from Your Next Stamp!

I'm really liking the Stitched Rectangle Frame Die set, so used it again here to create the border frame on my card front. Also new, is the Affirmation Card with Peek A Boo Door die. I chose to have the hinge at the bottom, but you could easily have it at the top or turn the card and have it on the side.

Remember you can always see my interactive card videos HERE on YouTube.

The little lambs from the Life Is Sweet set are just SO cute! I added one to the front of the door, then stamped one of the greetings onto a Stitched Fishtail Banner. A few sparkly Gumdrops finished off the card ... or did it???

Look at the little stamped scene that is behind the door! What a fun surprise for someone who receives this card.

Finally, here is a peek at the inside ...

Bright spring colours. I remember that your mom liked lambs. Did you use a fastener to keep the peek a boo door closed?

Hi Betty ... The door is attached to the stitched frame in two spots, one on either side of the little notch. You have to actually pull/tear them away to open the door, which I did before photographing my card. The door does stay closed pretty good after the recipient has opened it if they wish to keep it closed, but I added just a TINY bit of ATG adhesive in one corner of the flap for my video, just so it wouldn't pop open when I was filming.
