And here's my tutorial on Peep hole card

That's what you need: 
  • Cutting tool/knife
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities in three coordinating sizes
  • Epic Six or another cutting machine
  • Pencil
  • Removable tape 
  • Embellishments
  • Cardstock: 6 x 12" for the card base
  • 7,25x 7,25" (3x) for layering,optional: leftovers for decorating (punchouts etc.) - distress all the edges if you like
  • Design paper: 5,6 x 5,6" (3x) for layering, optional: leftovers for decorating (punchouts etc.)
    - distress all the edges if you like

How I did it:

I cut a piece of cardstock measuring 6 x 12 " and fold it at 6".

Select the image you want. Decide on the location to place the image inside your card. You can have a smaller image and choose to place the asymmetrical.

If I´m satisfied, I put the smallest one of the dies on top of the image (at the front part of the card) and choose the section which is going to be seen through the window of thefinished card. After pulling the image away from beneath it I fix the die with some removable tape and punch out the aperture at the front part of the card.

I´m going to put a layer of two different design paper to my lilac card base, of course these have to get some windows as well. I just don`t want them all the same size, but each a bit bigger, to achieve a nice layered effect.

So I use a larger Spellbinders dies on the next layers of designer paper.

Marks with pencil the third layer and cut out the opening with the last Spellbinders dies.

Here are my three parts.

If you`d like a little charm dangling in the window, now - before glueing all layers together - would be the right moment to insert it.

Here is my card ready. All layers are glued together and the front is embellished.

Here is the inside of the card.

Have a nice and creative week!
