Bunny peekaboo slider

I want to show you a card we made in class recently.  I taught my students how to make a peek-a-boo slider card.  If you have never heard of this type of card, this card as a hole in the front of the card that shows an image or sentiment through the hole. When you open the card another image slides into place.

Normally I usually a create a main panel and then stick it to the card base,  leaving the last little embellishment to finish off the card to last. For this project I did things the other way around, creating the card base, then decorating the card. Most of the tutorials for this card are made with the US letter size card stock.  I had to adjust the measurements so that the finished card would be A6 size and would fit into a standard sized envelope.   I constructed the card base and mechanism using Granny Apple Green and thick Whisper White card stock.

I decided to use a sentiment panel and an image for the peekaboo effect.  I used stamps from the Amazing Life and Itty Bitty Greetings stamped with Balmy Blue and Highland Heather ink for the sentiment Panel.  I used stamps from the Best  Bunny and Amazing Life stamp sets to create the image panel. I coloured the bunny and flowers with Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.

The front of the card was decorated starting with a panel where I stamped the Buffalo Check background stamp with Highland Heather ink on to Whisper White card stock. I coloured a piece of retired white ribbon with a Balmy Blue blends marker and attached it to the Buffalo check panel, which was attached to the card front.   I used the Layering Circle framelits to cut green glimmer paper to decorate the punched hole.  I spray some water colour paper with water and then applied Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green ink to the water colour paper with an aqua painter.  Once this was dry, I used the Butterfly Beauty thinlits cut some butterfly then attached the card front.  I added some bling with some retired sequins.
