Peek-a-boo

I know it's been awhile since I blogged but gosh life seems to go so fast lately. This is the workshop card Miah & her friends made last weekend at her workshop. As the attendees were approx. 6 years old I wanted something that was cute but hopefully couldn't fail & it didn't! Or they were very clever which was also true.


Cutting measurements:
Top mat (Melon Mambo or Marina Mist) 6.5 x 10.5 cm
Whisper White 6.8 x 12 cm
Basic Black 10" x 7" - love that our cutter has inches & cm

There is a wee trick to the card & I mucked up my first demo so that meant no one else did - they all learnt from my mistake :)
  1. Scallop border the whisper white piece - this width should be exactly the right width to give entire scallops.
  2. The trick is to punch out your scallop circle on the top mat by inserting your punch from the top as far down as it goes & centred. 
  3. Then attach to Whisper White - with your 1-3/8" circle punch from the side punch a hole in the centre of the scallop.
  4. Attach to Basic Black & punch out a hole with the 1-1/4" circle - this gives a wee black frame.
  5. Insert another whisper white mat inside.
  6. Stamp a small image - glitter it up. 
  7. Place around the image a scallop frame.

Wow you did well teaching them to make this card. It is rather cute and probably suitable for any age group.
