"Peek-a-Boo" Card

My card for today is a case of another of Leslie Miller’s cards. You can find the card here.
I have made cards like this in the past, but this card reminded me to do it again!

I started by cutting my mats – the gray and the white. I positioned them right where I wanted them on the card front, then cut the smallest hole with an Oval Nestability – all three layers at once. The base layer didn’t cut quite all the way through, but I could see exactly where it should go, so I ran that layer through again. Then I took the top white layer and used the next size bigger Nestability to cut the whole larger, allowing the gray to show though. I decided to use the Dotted Swiss embossing folder on the white, also. I added some silver ribbon, a Stampin’ Up! ribbon slider, and then I thought a white scalloped border would be nice around the gray, too. I had to sponge it with gray, too, of course! The cat is a stamp from Inkadinkado. I stamped it with SU! Going Gray and cut it out with an Oval Nestability and matted it on a little bit larger oval cut out of the gray paper. The cat is on the inside of the card. I think I will put “Best Wishes” on the outside of the card, and then put “for a purr-fect birthday” on the inside.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
