Good morning Odd friends, happy to find you here today it’s me, Sadia, writing today, and I’d like to share with you my peek a boo card step by step. I made this for a very special friend, and thougth this was the perfect structure to contai a very special message… let’s start:

First of all you need to cut e pieces of bazzil, I used white to keep it cleen and simple, size 5 1/2″ x 8 1/4″, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ , 5 1/2″ x 5 3/4″, and make the windows in the first and second pcs, in the same spot. I made the heart with my cameo, but you can use a die, and make them both at the same time, to be sure the hole is in the right position.

Once you made he hole, you can score the paper, put the 5 1/2″ x 8 1/4″ bazzil on the scoring board and score at 2 3/4″, then place the 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ bazzil on the scoring board and score at 4 1/4″ , and fold. Place thelast piece of bazzil on the scoring board and score at 5 1/2″ and fold along the score line.this will be the back of the card as shown in the next picture.

Put the paper in the way I show you in the picture, and adhere the first 2 large parts, as shown in the pic, and for the last add the small one for the back.

Now you can place the colore image, I used Tropical Piper and Gaze digi stamp, and I colored them with copic, you need to place it exactly in the opened spot of the window, but in the middle part of the card. 

Afterward you can place the sentiment, I printed it with a printer and made an off set with the sketch pen of my cameo, and you need to place it in the back, the last layer of the card, in the spot  correspondent to  the window when you open the card, make sure it is the right size to be hidden when you close the card. To make sure it is the right size, I used the hole frame as you can see in the picture.

and that’s that… here is my card, I hope you enjoyed it and it was clear enough…

have you all a great day

Hewwo Oddies!  Tabbatha here today to share 5 Easy Cards(-ish) with 1 Cut File.  But this isn’t a separate cut file, in fact it is the cut file that accompanies the Sunny Mae clear stamp set!

Not sure what I’m talking about?  Then check this little thing out:

Sunny Mae Cutting FileMost of the clear stamps have a cut file (on the cheap!) so that you can easily cut the image out (an alternative for those who don’t enjoy fussy-cutting!).  It leaves a nice border around the stamp as well, which helps with at least one of today’s cards.  😀

1) Card 1 — Fussy-cut Clear Stamp and Matting the Clear Stamp

To get us started, we have the original purpose of the cut file – to fussy-cut our clear stamps for us!  Not only can it do that, but also if we fussy-cut the stamp (or do an offset), we can mat our stamps as well.  The larger blue outline is done by using an offset, so it will have more than just the white background if we want it to POP with some contrast or added dimension!

2) Card 2 — Cut out Card

This style of card is really all the rage right now.  I bet you didn’t think it would be so easy, right?  In order to make this card, I created 4 rectangles a bit longer than I wanted for the card.  I then used the cutting file to subtract the shape from the end of each rectangle.  🙂 To finish it off, I used the same clouds to cut out four identical shapes then dry embossed each one.  Super easy!

3) Card 3 — Cut out background

A similar take on using the subtract tool for electronic cutters, this card (and number 5) use the cloud shapes in various positions to create a fantastic background.  This technique is quite familiar to those of us who use and love the cut file backgrounds from the shop.

4) Card 4 — Masking

Keeping with the background theme, you can use these cut files to quickly cut out masks on post-it notes (just put your cutting blade down low, like for vinyl).  If you want the mask to really hug the cloud stamps, then do an internal offset too!

5) Card 5 — Stencil

This idea is something that is definitely not new on the Some Odd Girl Blog, but it still rocks.  Stencils!!  With this stencil, however, you have a bit of play, since you are the one deciding the placement for the clouds.  😉

Not too shabby, if you don’t mind me saying so myself.  5 super easy cards (and some backgrounds ready to be turned into cards), that look fabulous!  Not only that, but you have yet another way to extend the life of your stamps and if you ever needed a reason to buy those clear stamp cut files, then there ya go!

While it may be summer, there is still a lot of fun to be had with us Odd Girls! Remember to share any Some Odd Girl creations with us on Instagram and on Facebook.  Always add #SomeOddGirl to your social media so we can find you!
