Always





I have two stamp sets that had not been used yet so this card has been made with one of them - Always from the Spring Mini catalogue. I have been wanting to make a Peekaboo card for a while and this set gave me an ideal opportunity!

To see a wonderful video on this technique and many many other lovelies, go to Dawn's blog. Thank you so much Dawn for showing it so well and making it so easy to make. Dawn is at the SU Convention at SLC right now but is going to put up photos for us from there so I can't wait to see some of the action.

It is hard to show how this card works from pictures but basically, when it is opened, another picture appears in the window. Two pieces of card are used and I have opted to use two different colours - sage shadow and very vanilla. I do love this colour combo - Not Quite Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla and Sage Shadow.

The little wording at the bottom comes from the set So Many Sayings and so I continued on with that with the Always word when you open the card! I think I might be making more of these type of card - it was fun and easy to make.

I love this card Jean. Something else I'll have to try. Better stay home instead of going out and about. lol
