Welcome to another Fancy Fold blog hop! We are a group of demonstrators that gather once a month to showcase different Fancy Folds each month from all over the world!! Today, our design team is excited to showcase the Peekaboo Hidden Message Card.

If you're already been blog hopping then you just came from the talented Shannean Moncrieff and if you are joining us for the first time, not a problem as you can continue on the blog by clicking on the next button at the bottom of the page to scroll through the rest of this creative blog hop!!

I love that this blog hop is challenging me to step outside by creative zone and create projects that I have never tried before! To be honest, I have seen Peek a Boo cards but have never made one before. After watch a few videos on this unique fold, it was time to give it a try. It was easier then I thought, I know that I will be giving this fancy fold a try in the future!!

My project today is a little sneak peak of new product that will be featured in the new Holiday Catalogue that will be starting on Sept 1. As a demonstrator, I was able to pre-order on August 2 and I couldn't wait to get my hands on my new goodies. On top of my list was the new Cookie Cutter Bundle that consist of the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and Cookie Cutter Builder punch along with the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper and the Candy Cane Lane Baker Twine.

For my outside layer, I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock and using my Big Shot machine and the Holly Impression Folder, I embossed my layer to give it some textured in the background. Then I cut two strips of the Candy Cane Lane designer series paper and using the Triple Banner Punch, I punched one end to create the banner look. Then using my Layering Ovals and the Big Shot machine, I cut a Oval in Whisper White card stock. Then using the new Candy Cane Christmas Stamp set, I stamped my greeting in Real Red.

Then using the Gingerbread image from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp, I stamped my image in Early Espresso onto a piece of Whisper White scrap. Then using the Cookie Cutter Punch, I punched him out. I added some Real Red Enamel Shapes to create his buttons and then popped him up onto my oval. I went wild with my Candy Cane Lane Baker Twine behind my circle, I guess I wanted it to look like my gingerbread man got into some mischief and created a mess with the twine. LOL I then adhere this to the front of my card base that measured 5 1/4 by 11 1/4, score at 4 and 8.

Now here comes the magic part of this card...the inside!!

I chose to keep my inside clean and simple as I wanted to focus on the hidden message. As you can see right now, all you see is a scallop oval with a blank inside. But wait...if you move the card up and down...this happens....

Surprise...a Hidden message appears. I have to admit after I created this card, I just stood here playing with it for a few minutes watching that little greeting disappear and reappear!! I can't wait to make another one of these card!!

My inside piece was decorated using the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series paper, and the Layering Oval Framelits. I used the greeting from the Oh, What fun stamp set. This was a set that carried over from last year!! Watch for my more fun cards with Fancy Fold in the future!! Want to give this fancy fold a try, I would recommend watching a few videos to help you get started!!

Cute card. What video's do I watch for this Fancy Fold? What do I call this fold?


Kate, this fancy fold card is called Peek a boo hidden card. The video I watched for this fold was created my sweet friend Dawn Griffith. You can find the video here.
