Today, I am going to show you how I made this tri-fold card with a little pick a boo window and then when you open it, it looks like that.
SO let me show you how I did that. I am using the ghostly greetings designer paper and that is cut at 3 1/8” x 4”. Then you are going to score at 4” and then 7 5/8” and then fold that in together then that makes you card. I am also using the new Halloween Fright Stamp Set from the Holiday Mini. I use the bat image in Whisper White and I cut that out with the 1” circle punch, tangles the 1 ¼” circle punch. The basic grays with the 1 3/8” circle punch. And then after I cut that then I went ahead and used my scale punch and punched out the little boarder for round the window. And then the spooky nights that is in the stamp set is stamped on whisper white and I punched that out with the small oval punch and it fits perfectly in there. The basic gray is cut out with the large oval punch So let us get started.
I am going to go ahead and adhere my designer paper to the front of my card. The front of your card – your extra hangover here about ¼” or so will be on the right hand side so it will look like that. Let us go ahead and adhere this together. I am also using the basic gray taffeta ribbon. I am going to attach this to the back of my designer paper. So now, we are going to adhere this to the front of our card and then I am just going to tie this ribbon in a knot. Then you are going to take your 1 3/8” circle punch and you are going to open your card all the way up and you are going to use the center lines, I want to insert the punch as far as I can all the way into the card base. Then with the basic gray, the 1 3/8” circle punch, I am just going to add some adhesive to that. I am just going to put this on the center of that circle. If you do it when the card is closed, then you will get a perfect alignment for that hole and it lines up perfectly. For the bat, I am going to use the dimensional and position that right over top of that basic gray. From my small oval punch, I am just going to put a dimensional where it says spooky nights. I am going to put it over the left hand side of the punch. Then I am just going to add some adhesive to my scallop punch out and then position this over top of my circle pick a boo hole.
Now, we are going to take our slit punch and holding the card closed, I am going to slide the punch upside down underneath this card like that. I am just going to slide it to about where I want that slit punch to go. I will just punch that and that that is going to serve as the closure of my card like that so it keeps it close. From my spooky nights, that is when I want to put the dimensional on the left had side of my oval punch because I want to position this somewhat over that slit punch so it kind of camouflages it but yet, it is not being adhered down too so you can actually open it like that.
All right stampers, thanks for stopping by. We will see you later, bye!
