Hello Stampers! Today I’m going to show you a really cool card. I’m calling it the Peek A Boo Card but it is also called the Telescoping Card. I’ve had a few very short posts but I’m going to warn you – this will be a long one.
Looks just like a Gate Fold…right? Watch…
Hmm…what’s going on?
A birthday cake is sneaking out.
Wow! Isn’t that really cool? It’s such a neat surprise.
A fellow demo in my upline group showed us this but in a larger size. I scaled it down to a regular 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card. Really had to use my math skills on that!
Here’s all the directions. Hope you can follow them.
Stamp Sets – Endless Birthday
Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper – Mint Macaron, Whisper White, Birthday Bouquet DSP, Soft Sky Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral
Accessories – Stitched Shapes Thinlits, Stampin’ Write Markers, Foam Strips, Tear and Tape, Mini Balloon PunchM
Card Base – 5 ½ x 8 ½ , score at 2 1/8 on each side on 8 ½ side (to form a Tri-fold)

Adhere the 5 ¼ x 3 piece of DSP to Center Panel
Cut the window using Stitched Shapes die through both pieces of panel – ** save the Mint Macaron piece for front

Stamp Happy Birthday on one piece of Whisper White and the birthday cake on the second piece
Using the smaller square die from Stitched Shapes to cut out the Happy Birthday and the larger square to cut out the square from the piece you saved

Here’s the template:
Start with a rectangle measuring 3 1/4 x 3 3/8 and cut a V in the center of one 3 1/4 side 1 3/8 in.
I taught this card to my Stamp Club and with care they all got it following written and some verbal directions.
Hope you enjoyed this card. Please try to make it. Once you’ve done it…you see so many possibilities. It’s such a fun card!
My next posts will be from my May class featuring Congrats cards. The neat thing about them is they can be used for so many different Congratulation events.
Until my next post…Happy Stamping!
