You are Toadally Adorable!


There is just something about making a Peek-a-Boo card that I adore. They are so fun. Every time I open one, it just makes me smile. Since this type of card usually takes me a couple of days to make, I typically only make them for special occasions. Of course, Valentine's day is the perfect excuse! 

For those of you who are unfamiliar with a Peek-a-Boo card, it is a card that has a hidden sliding panel. Once you open the card, the picture is replaced with a different image. 

The papers are from a Craftsmart Hot Buy Valentine's cardstock collection, and the digital images are from PrettyGrafikDesign on Etsy. 

I am a beginner when it comes to Copics. However, I am enjoying the learning process. I previously had Ohuhu markers, but I am replacing them with Copics, and they are much different. Copics lay down a lot more ink and are a lot juicier. I'm currently taking an online class to help improve my skill set. 

I used the Copic colors: Y13, Y18, G40, G94, G99, RV52, RV55 RV02, RV04, and a blender. 

The font is called Sweetie Pie from I typed out the button and banner on my computer. The stitched heart was cut out several times to give it dimension. I layered the smaller white on top for a pop of color. 

All of the flowers I used are from The Paper Studio. The leaves were created by using a couple of different metal dies I own. 

To finish out all of my cards, I always tag the back. This year, I started adding the date or occasion as well, which is new for me. 

Since this is a keepsake card, I will be sure to make a box to store it. 

The finished card is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". If you would like the cut pieces to create your own, the sizes are as follows:

Pattern Pieces:
(3) 5 3/8" w x 5 3/8" h
(3) 4 1/8" w x 5 3/8" h
(1) 2 3/4" w x 5 3/8" h

Base Cardstock:
8 3/8" w x 5 1/2" h, scored at 2 7/8"
8 1/2" w x 5 1/2" h, scored at 4 1/4"
5 3/4" w x 5 1/2" h, scored at 1/4" 

To make it easier, I set up a Cricut cut file. The pieces are precisely cut and are easier to assemble and align. 

If you decide to create one of your own, I would love to have you share a picture! Thanks for joining me this week for this 'bonus' Valentine's Day card. I hope your special day was memorable.

Happy crafting, everyone!
