Best of …PEEK-A-Boo…

Standard

So Hello!!  And welcome back to the BEST OF blog tour…

(and for those of you who have been following me, I survived the hazardous stamping incident from a few days ago…  and, it must have been REAL bad cause the following  morning, I went to school with two different pairs of shoes on…)  HUM.

ANYWAY…  BEST OF FLOWERS!!  Lots of nice flowers here…  And, the flower I use from this stamp set was one of my favorites, until it went into the great stamp beyond…  Glad to see it back!!

This little flower stamp fits perfectly into the Decorative Label punch..  Makes a nice peek-a-boo window!!

So, it is a little tricky to get it lined up all right, but it’s not too hard to master.  What I did was make a template where I could line up the punch on the front of card with the place I wanted to put a mask for the inside.  I used the corner of the paper to line up the punch…

When I had the template put on top of the card stock (Oh, which is Bashful Blue… one of the ones we are losing… so sad).  I just traced the inside top of the template with a pencil.  This way, I could see where to punch…

So, I just put the pencil mark on just the inside of the punch and that will make sure the hole on the front of the card is punched in the right place.

I also made an INK template… It’s same as the punch template, but I didn’t wanna risk transferring ink to the front of the card.  SO…  You glue a white panel inside the card, and line the template up on the corners.  Stamp THROUGH the template hole and sponge.. (I used Midnight Muse for the flowers and bashful blue for the sponging.  Ignore the daffodil on the template… I changed my mind..

And, here it is when it is closed…  Your flowers peek through the window you  made.

Embellish it up a little bit…I used the bashful blue taffeta ribbon, I used the little four petal flower punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  I LOVE that punch.  I put a little DIAMOND (my friend likes to spell it DI-HU-MUNDS…) and WHO DOESN’T LOVE THOSE??  (I suppose legal requirements would propel me to explain that they are not really diamonds, but rhinestones).  STILL BEAUTIFUL.

And, this is what you get!!20130418_214229

Oh… I embossed the front of the card with the polka-dot embossing folder!!
