This card is similar to the PEEK A BOO cards that I have shared from DAWN… the difference is that this one has a much larger opening then the ones DAWN did… that makes it a bit more difficult but also more impressive and it allows you to use larger images to be viewed… this is very impressive and if you watch the video then print out the tutorial it won’t be that hard ….now there are quite a few layers and those my friend are up to you…. if  you don’t want that many layers then you can leave some of them off… but this is a DO WATCH FIRST… PLUS not all embellishments have to be die cut sometimes we have wonderful stickers, brads, even stamps to use as embellishments. Now some eye candy … ST PAT’S EYE CANDY Since I completely blew sharing valentines BEFORE VALENTINES DAY….I thought I should make a better effort with ST PATRICK’S DAY and maybe you don’t share cards on St Pat’s day… FYI My Dad’s birthday was MARCH 17 TH and he was part welsh/irish…so every since his death in 04 I have dedicated my ST PAT’S CARDS to his memory… I spent some time on PINTEREST looking at ST PAT’S HANDMADE CARDS… in case you don’t have pinterest account here are some of the ones I liked the best….

OK MY FAVORITE was the top left of this last sheet …the little irishman…. isn’t he just adorable…. lots of punches or dies but I sat and punched them out while watching tv then I put them together and of course I am going to use googley eyes …lol…. and then applying them on tags…. my second favorite is the guy on the bottom with the mustache which is actually the wings from the STAMPIN UP BIRD PUNCH…YOU KNOW HOW I LOVE TO REPURPOSE THINGS…

The bird punch is from Stamping up and the Mason jar is from EK Success and was only $12 dollars at TARGET… I used the mason jar to make his hat… I just cut it off and then I also used the word punch from Stamping up to make the rim on his hat… it was a lot of punching but I did them all first then later assembled them I think I am going to put them on TAGS…but not finished yet will show to you when I am done…

EYE CANDY

PAPER SCULPTURE…DAVE WOOD..Mr Wood is both a calligrapher and an amazing paper artist…You can watch this video on Youtube and then if you type In DAVE WOOD CALLIGRAPHY  to google you can go to his web site where he also has pieces for sale and he also does commission work.  Go feast your eyes and drool..HERE IS a little appetizer … this especially appealed to me I like the rain…

CAR CALLIGRAPHY...that’s write written with a car…. AND a calligrapher… you gotta see this one.

DEMYSTIFY THE MUSE….This one is for all those folks who think they are not creative… I have said before that especially women our age need to give themselves PERMISSION to go and play…. we were taught that we must be doing laundry or something useful to justify our existence… but when we play we do court our muse and we do learn and do many other things that work to make us better…anyway the say it better than me so go look and learn…

SCS ONE LAYER PAPER TOLE.. TWO reasons for adding this card one is that I am certain that there are folks out there that would love to do this…I am not one of them… I  love the look and MAYBE with a less detailed image I would  in fact give it a try but it is absolutely lovely and the second reason is that SCS’s in house design person is DINA who is demo-ing this card and she is VERY GOOD… she give good instructions and this card needs it.

Well guys that’s it for this post..Now go make..SOMETHING…AS ALWAYS THANKS FOR STOPPIN BY..wire headed cyber toad…AKA kath

    • Lydia, click on the BLUE LINK at the top of the post and it will take you to SPLIT COAST STAMPERS web site which will give you both a printed version of how to make the card and a video of how to make it…enjoy…my suggestion as always is cut a template and save it in a protector sheet and write the measurements on it so you can create it again quickly or make some blanks and keep them in the sheet also all you have to do is decorate…
