Double Peek-A-Boo Card


This is the intermediate level to my peek-a-boo card tutorial (HERE)...LOL.  Just kidding!!!  This is just another variation of the peek-a-boo card.  Instead of the one window, I've created two windows instead.  I made my card after I saw Dena's adorable card HERE which led me to Dawn's tutorial HEREwhich led me to create my own tutorial.

So here's the card that I've created...

To create the double windows, I've used a circle die from the Spellbinder Standard Circles set that is 2 1/8 inches (5.4cm) across.  This size window is just perfect for the Magnolia's mini stamp images!  Woo-hoo...

These other two images are of Mini Celebration 1 Tilda from Mini Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012 

I've used my Letraset Promarkers and Pantone Trias to colour these mini Tilda.  I find those fine tips a really big help with these minis. 
Magnolia-licious on-line store is of course the place to get your mini Magnolia stamps.  Diana has an excellent selection of both the full-size and mini stamps.  Don't miss checking out the die selections from Memory Box, PoppyStamps and Magnolia.  Discount prices and in-store credits too--sweet!  

I am using this card as my entry to these challenges: 
Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia Challenge #50 – Use your favorite image (the last 2 Tildas are 2 of my faves...LOL)
Crafts and Me Challenge #98 – Autumn Colours
Just Magnolia hAnglar & sTanglar Week 171 - Show me a heart
7 Kids College Fund Challenge #54 - Flower Power 
The Paper Shelter Challenge #78 - Anything Goes
Tilda's Town Challenge #15 - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I always appreciate your visit and look forward to any comments you care to leave me.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!  Happy creating!

Hi Norma, on the top of your blog, you have Tilda saying "I'm so glad you're here", well I'm so glad I'm here too. I LOVE your blog and this card you did not dissappoint at all. I adore this card you created as much if not more than the others. Love all the Tilda's and the coloring of each. Each has their own personality yet you brought them all together so well. Love your little flowers! A special card for sure!
Hugs, Jean

These Peek A Boo cards are really cool. And this double version is especially cute. My only reservation would be the limited space available for a message....Any ideas for a way around that?
