Winter Chalet Peek-a-Boo Card

Is it cold where you live? It's been cold and snowy here, so I made a card that embodies all the good witnery things from the coziness of my craft room! 

My card features a fun peek-a-boo panel that flips open to reveal the full scene - HOW FUN! I used the Winter Chalet 4x6 Layering Stamps and a handful of LDRS Creative Hybrid Inks to stamp a scene on an A2 landscape panel of white cardstock. I added a bit of blue ink blending at the top of the panel and gray towards the bottom to mimic the ground and the sky. 

To create that peek-a-boo panel I first cut a piece of 8.5" x 11" cardstock in half and folded it as if I was creating a top folding portrait A2 card. I turned it sideways so that I had a landscape card with the fold on the left hand side. I love that the one die from the Offset Slimline Stackables Dies looks like little mountains - perfect for my card! I opened the card and taped the die in place about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom and ran it through my die cutting machine. REMEMBER!! Make sure your card is open when you die-cut otherwise you'll cut through both the front and the back and that's no good! 

I added some soft blue ink blending to the top of the die-cut edge and then stamped a sentiment from the Bundle Up Collage 4x6 Stamps on the front of the peek-a-boo panel. I glued the scene panel to the inside of the card and just like that .... I have the cutest peek-a-boo card!
