Peek-a-boo cards have been around for awhile, but I realized I never shared one in a video! So today I have three versions for you – I am hoping you will try one! The video shares all the dimensions and how to assemble the pieces – so be sure to watch it!

My first shows a peek-a-boo card where the image in the window changes as you open the card. I used the Your Next Stamp Pawsome Pups, Cool Cats, and Starburst Stamp Sets. I created the windows with the Hero Arts Infinity Circle Dies. Here is the outside of the card…

… and the image in the window changes when you open it…

My second card features a peek-a-boo window where the sentiment changes when you open it. I again used the Your Next Stamp Cool Cats Stamp Set and Hero Arts Infinity Circle Dies. The little red hearts are from the Your Next Stamp Magical Ponies Stamp Set. Here is the front of the card…

…and when you open, you see a different greeting…

My last peek-a-boo card is top-folding. It features the Your Next Stamp Unicorns Rock and Party Pets stamp sets.

  5. Your cards are both INGENIOUS and DELIGHTFUL. Your friend will absolutely be thrilled!!! (I wish I had the at one to send to my sister-in-law who is laid up following a surgery. I saw a cute pic of her yesterday with her cat laying on top of her as she recuperates in bed.) The technique is extraordinary and the Your Next Stamps are filled with so many cute graphics and funny sayings.

  6. I have a question about the assembly – are the top panel and the back panel not connected on the left hand side of the finished card? Thank you in advance for clarifying!

  7. I love your blog and videos. I learn so much and love seeing your joy of creating and sharing kindness. My favorite of all your cards in this post is the silly cat on the get well card. Thank you for sharing and being one of the generous sponsors for Rubeena’s 4th year celebration of crafting.

  8. Jennifer, once again you have outdone yourself! Every card concept that you demonstrate goes on my To Do list. I love that you are willing to share your talent and ideas. I can’t keep up but the upside is that I will never be bored or without something to do. The peek a boo cards are really sweet. They are a good way to highlight my favorite stamped images.

As always, you are so kind and generous with your support of other designers. Thank you for being a part of Rubeena’s crafty anniversary.

  10. I HAVE to get the unicorn stamp and die set!! That is so cute and works great with the peek•a•boo card (this is also my first time seeing one)!

  11. Thanks for the easy to follow intructions. I especially like the idea of using black glaze pens on eyes and animal noses.

  12. Thank you for explaining the technique and showing it so clearly! Can’t wait to give this a try and make a card for my nephew!

  15. Awwww…. So adorable. These designs bring smile to my face. Love to make them and giving them to closest and dearest ones. Thank you for your inspirations.

  16. I’ve watched your video 6 times now, and i’ve written down the measurements so that I can give this a go myself. I don’t own any YNS images (yet), but am thinking of drawing a vampire and a bat for a fun halloween card for my grandsons. I don’t normally ‘do’ halloween, but think this technique would work so well with it, well it does in my head anyway! Thank you for sharing your ideas, tips, and techniques with us 🙂

  17. Your cards are so creative and absolutely adorable!! I thoroughly enjoyed your video and will definitely be watching it again when I try to make a peek-a-boo card myself. Those stamps are so cute that I had to add a few to my wish list. Thank you for sharing your incredible talent with us.

  18. Once again, you blow me away with your creativity and designs. I rarely make interactive cards, some of the elements to make them are pricey. Here you are making interactive cards without the dies, I love that. I’ll give this a try. Thanks for sharing!
