Peek-A-Boo Card

This is a card for a shoebox swap - sorry you all missed it. This card engineering is from Dawn - see her video from2/28/08 on her web site - it is waaaay cool.(http://www.dawnsstampingthoughts.typepad.com). Here's my version. I also added little "dots" on to the flowers using a white gel pen which does not show up very well in the photo. This is an optional step. Dawn's card uses a 1-1/4" Circle Punch, I used1-1/2".

Open the card and it reveals the message: "You crack me Up"

Here's a close-up of the message:

Here is a close-up of the Chick:

And here is the top view of the card.

Some tips to make this card:
1. Put each sheet of paper through the Big Shot Textured Plates
2. Stamp Chick and message before punching out.
3. Color chick and apply glitter after card is completed to allow for it to dry
4. To make the "rings" around the openings: use 1-1/2" circle punch, then use 1-3/4" punch. You will need 3 of these.
5. Apply the Dazzling Diamond glitter last so it can dry.
You've got to go to Dawn site for the measurements and her MUST SEE video!
