Peek A Frame with Nichol!

Hello everyone! Nichol here today with another card showcasing the Peek A Frames Creative Cuts die collection. For my card share today I thought it would be fun to show how to use the window peek a frame to create a double window that opens from the center of the card to reveal the lovely Christmas scene inside.

PEEKAFRAME1

To create the window I first die cut some smooth white cardstock using the A2 sized Peek A Frame die. Then I die cut the window opening Peek A Frame die with the score line along the left side of the card, leaving approximately equal distance between the left side and the top and bottom of the stitched rectangle. Next I flipped the die over, lining up the cut side with the center of the card and die cut the design again, creating a window that opens towards the center of my card. 

For the Christmas scene inside my card I stamped and watercolored the images from Sweet Havana, Winter Wonderland, and Bloomsies stamp sets using Distress Markers. Once the images were dry, I stamped the greeting from the Merry Greetings stamp set using black dye ink. A bit of clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker over the hanging ornament bells and some simple black lines to "hang" the bells complete the inside of my card.

I popped the frame up with foam adhesive and adhered the whole thing to a white card base.
