Peek-a-Boo Thank You! by Amanda

Posted by Amanda Fitterer on

These little guys from Avery Elle are so versatile and perfect for peeking out of any shapes! Read below to see how I made this card step-by-step.

I started with these diamond dies from The Stamp Market.

I used this Stitched die border next.

On another piece of cardstock, I created a Distress Oxide background using Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover.

I sprinkled some water on the finished background with a water brush.

I used 3D foam tape to adhere the front piece to the background.

I grabbed my Peek-a-Boo pals with their little paws and a few party hats. I used Tuxedo Black Memento ink, since I wanted to use Copics to color the little guys in.

For the tiniest party hat, I used YG01, 03, 07, and 09.

For the cutie little panda, I used N0, 2, 4, 6, and R11.

For the elephant, I used T0, 1, 2, 3 and R11.

I used C00, 0, 2, and R11 for the koala.

I used YG01 and 03 for the bigger party hat.

I used the coordinating dies to cut out all my little pals and paws.

I used 3D foam tape behind the pals and used glue for the paws.

I decided to add some grass here and there, but ended up not using most of them. :)

I used glue to put some of the grasses behind the pals.

I layed some green sequins out where I wanted them and then used glue to adhere them.

I used green Nuvo drops as well.

At this point, I realized I forgot to put some sort of sentiment on the card! :) Normally, I would've done the sentiments first before my sequins and Nuvo drops. I ended up doing the sentiments last and covered up a sequin and drop when I adhered them! Whoops! That's card making for ya!

So I used Versamark watermark to stamp my sentiments (after dusting my cardstock with my anti-static tool.

I used my heat gun to heat emboss it.

Then I cut them into strips.

I used scissors to create angled edges on the strips.

I used glue and 3D foam on the "Thank You" sentiment and just glue on the other one.

Once I got my sentiments on, I realized I needed some more black to even it out. So I used the heart dies that are included in the Peek-a-Boo pals die set.
