I had so much fun making this peekaboo card for my friend Candace Scarborough (YT: Candace Scarborough). Her hubby is a music teacher, and she asked folks to make a musically themed card for her 1500 Subbie Giveaway Challenge.
I followed a tutorial by Sandy Allnock for this peekaboo card. Rather than stamping out background papers like Sandy did, I used musical paper from the Lost and Found Two paper stack, inking around the edges to distress everything with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
I have been wanting to use this Some Odd Girl Hipster Pets stamp set for a while now, and I thought this classy but super cute fox with a top hat, a monocle, and a bow tie, would be a great focal point for this interactive card. I stamped out the fox and his accessories, colored them up with the following Copic markers, and fussy cut everything out. Top hat: B95, 97, 39 and N10; Dark part of fox: E25, and 23; Light part of fox: E21 and 23; Fox feet and middle of tail: W9 and 7; Tip of tail and inside of ears: W1 and R20. I paper pieced the sash on the top hat and the bow tie from some scrap patterned paper and used clear Wink of Stella on them to add shimmer. Finally I added highlights on the monocle, nose and eyes using my white Gelly Roll pen and Glossy Accents over the monocle, eye, and nose to add shine.
Some finishing details include adding amber square bling to the lower front right of the card, reinforcing the tag with dark brown cardstock (the same that I used to back the musical paper background) before adding sheer black ribbon, rounding two of the card corners (and the liner paper) using my deco Crop O Dile, and distress inking the edges of the white liner paper that I added in order make note writing easier and more legible.
