Today we’re pulling out the BigShot to create our Simply Sunday card, which features the Peek Through technique. This is the technique my Technique Clubs learned this month and this is one of their cards.
It’s a done in our Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White, in fact, we are using the “thick” Whisper White for today’s technique card. Our base is in the Sweet Sugarplum and our Thick Whisper White is our 4″ x 5-1/4″ front.
We are using the Special Reasons bundle found on page 42 of the Occasions Catalog. These special dies create our “Peek Through” by cutting the flower without cutting the edge so it gives you an almost negative image and allows you to see through to the back ground. It also comes with an outline die that will cut out the same flower … so it gives you two uses!
We used the Precision plate with our flower die and placed it onto our thick cardstock and rolled it through. It cut out beautifully and easily releases the pieces, however if you have the die brush you can use that to hurry the process of removing the pieces.
You can see from this camera angle that the entire white front piece has been popped up which creates a wonderful dimension to the flower and the card.
The greeting comes from the Suite Sentiments stamp set found on page 54 of the Occasions catalog … you’ve seen me use this stamp set many times. Did you know that the fonts in this stamp set coordinate with fonts from some of the other Occasions stamp sets! Good to know 🙂
The ribbon is the coordinating Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon and is used as an anchor to the card. Then just a touch of bling was added to draw your eye around the entire card, and it really completes it.
