I am getting SUCH a kick out of this Christmas slimline peek a boo card! I just love that the little windows give you mini-spaces to create mini-scenes and these three little snowmen are perfect little representatives of the season!  For this project I used the Rubbernecker Slimline Peek a Boo Classic, Slimline Nested Stitch, Winter Snowmen, Tiny Leaves with Acorns #3, Nested Square Scallop, Splatter Background and Christmas Phrases Large/Small.

Peek a Boo Card Front

  • Use red cardstock to cut a 7.00″ x 8.50″ layer, score down the middle at 3.50″ to create the card base.
  • Cut a 3.00″ x 8.00″ piece of red cardstock for the peek a boo slimline layer.
  • Place the red layer on the cutting platform, line up the Slimline Peek a Boo die and cut.
  • Use white pigment ink to stamp the Splatter Background on the peek a boo layer, apply white embossing powder and heat. Note:  Be sure and pat your embossing magic bag over the peek a boo layer before you stamp to eliminate static cling.
  • Cut a 2.50″ x 7.00″ piece of light blue cardstock to use inside the peek a boo windows.
  • Use white pigment ink to stamp the Splatter Background, apply white embossing powder and heat.  Set the blue layer aside until you assemble the whole card together.

The Frame and Scallop Layers

  • Cut a 3.25″ x 8.25″ piece of white cardstock, place it on the cutting platform, place the largest Slimline Nested Stitch die and cut.
  • Leave the slimline layer on the cutting platform, line up the second largest Slimline Nested Stitch die to create the frame and cut.
  • Use white cardstock to cut the white scalloped layers using the smallest die from the Nested Square Scallop set.
  • Stamp the sentiment on one of the scalloped layers using Nocturne ink. Note:  I love using Versafine Clair inks to stamp sentiments because it always create a crisp image.

The Mini Wreaths

  • Punch out two 3/4″ circles and create the tiny wreath rings by cutting into the circles and cutting out the ring. It’s easier to show than tell.
  • Attach the two ends of the ring together using glossy accents.

  • Cut several sections of the the smallest leaves in the Tiny Leaves die.
  • Place the leaves face up on the molding pad and form them using the leaf tool.
  • Attach the first leaf to the ring using glossy accents and continue attaching and overlapping the leaves to create the wreath.
  • Punch out several 1/8″ circles using red cardstock and attach them to the wreaths using glossy accents.

The Snowmen

  • Cut the snowmen parts and pieces using a mix of colorful cardstock. Note:  I place all the small pieces like the eyes, nose and buttons on my molding pad instead of my desk top.  It makes it so much easier to pick up the tiny pieces because I can slip the tweezers under the piece on the squishy pad.  It’s almost impossible to pick them up off a flat surface because the just slide around.
  • Attach the two snowmen body sections together using glossy accents.
  • Attach all the body parts, hats and scarves to the snowmen using glossy accents.
  • Adhere two little leaves and red circle to each snowman scarf for a Christmas touch.

Assemble the Slimline Peek a Boo Card

  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the red peek a boo layer and attach the blue snowy layer.
  • Adhere the white scalloped layers to the red peek a boo window fronts and attach with double stick tape,
  • Attach the wreaths to the peek a boo windows using glossy accents.
  • Attach two leaves and a red circle to the top of the sentiment layer and attach using glossy accents.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the white frame and attach it to the red peek a boo section.
  • Apply double stick tape on the back of the framed peek a boo layer and attach it to the red card base.
  • Tuck the snowmen inside the peek a boo windows and attach using double stick tape.

Don’t be fooled by all the steps it took for me to write out the step by step tutorial.  It took me lots longer to write the tutorial than to make the card.  This was so much fun to make and I have tons of ideas for different occasions.
