A peek from inside out!

Today I bring you a combined card. This card is a shaker card, but also a peek a boo card. I have a tutorial for the peek a boo card here: http://sugarbeancards.blogspot.com/2016/08/peek-boo-card-tutorial.html and yes, I did have to consult it a few times for this one!

Moving on. I received an order from a customer who knew that the recipient loves cardinals. So she gave me free range of the card design, as long as it had a cardinal or two.

The concept behind this card is often referred to as a 'window card'. The outer face is the inside of a living room looking out to the woods.

I didn't have a file for wainscoting so I had to make my own. Which looks difficult, but actually it was fairly easy compared to the rest of the card!

Through the window (which is the shaker portion full of "snow"), the male cardinal can be seen. 
 Open the card all of the way, and the female appears! As well as the siding of the house.
I used my eBrush to float color in on both the male and female birds. 

  The very back portion displays a greeting and space for a hand written message.
