Laurie LaRose Creative Stampin' Up! Projects

Friday, September 7, 2012


My Littlest had her birthday the other day! I was busy making a banner and her card. I thought I'd share the card with you. It is a pretty simple version.
I have the Peek-a-boo Die for the Big Shot and I thought: who better than my Girlie to do a lift-the-flap type idea for! She was thrilled, even her older sister was keen to peek behind the flaps...

The card is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2. I used Pink Pirouette as the layer panel so I could just stamp directly behind the doors. My timing wasn't allowing for a lot of fiddling. I did texture a couple doors instead of stamping on them, I like the bit of variety...
What could be more important than a card for my baby girl?!  Nothing really...Sadly my creativity doesn't become active until the final hours before a 'due' date and by the time I'd finished the banner it was getting pretty late.

Isn't there a saying something like: If it wasn't for the last minute, I'd never get anything done!

(Hence, I'm up late tonight making a few 'batches' of different items to sell at the Harvest Fair the day after tomorrow...ideas are just tumbling around now, despite trying to put some of it together about a month ago...)

Wish me luck pulling that together!



  1. What a cute card! The little flaps are so much fun!

  2. Adorable! And I love that fits me well! I am always scrambling last minute! Good luck at the fair and have fun! :-)

  3. I love all the little surprises you packed into this sweet birthday card!!!

    Best wishes for a fun and fabulous craft fair!!

    1. Thanks. I went over tonight to start some set up and the organizers have done a great job...I'm excited. I plan on having fun...hoping for the fabulous part in sales : ) Thanks for your best wishes!

  4. I like the idea of embossing those peek-a-boo frames. Was your little girl thrilled when she opened her card?

  5. What a cute idea that peek-a-boo card is. Hmmnn lots of ideas churning around now..

    Oh, and I like to refer to my last minute work habits as "works well under pressure" I even have it on my resume! I am the queen of procrastination :)
