Peekaboo Slider Card for Mother's Day

My upcoming Technique Night classes have Mother's Day as their theme and for one of the cards that we are going to do for this class, I wanted to feature a fancy fold card to make the technique a little more interesting. This fancy fold is known as a Peekaboo Slider Card and you'll see why in these photos:

As you open the card, a hidden massage, is revealed in the sentiment circle, as a new panel slides into place. It's not a difficult technique, but it does require you to get everything lined up well and adhered securely.

  • The stamped embellishments I used for the front of the card came from an old friend, the First Frost stamp set, which carried over from the Holiday Catalogue, and coordinates with the Frosted Bouquet Framelits, which also carried over. They are still some of my favourite images and came to mind immediately when I thought of Mother's Day.
  • The sentiments are from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue. It has some Mother's Day specific sentiments as well as some that fit generically for any women. It's a great set to have in your collection.
  • Merry Merlot, Petal Pink, Grey Granite and Gold Foil Sheets make a great colour palette. So rich and elegant and great for florals and foliage.
  • I made the frames around the window openings with Gold Foil Sheets. I punched out the openings with the 2" Circle Punch and then used the Layering Circle framelit that was slightly larger to cut out a frame over it using the Gold Foil. Worked like a dream. When applying it to the window area, I added the liquid glue with a narrow bead around the edge of the hole to be covered and then carefully laid the Gold Foil frame down on the area to be framed, lining up the inside of the hole.                                           

The video I used to learn how to do this fancy fold is one of Dawn Griffiths and you can follow it here:   

Right now you can purchase the new Stampin' Storage for your inks and markers:


**Just a heads up: The new ink pad storage shelves will not accommodate the old style ink pad, just the new style brought out in 2018.
