Scored Peek A Boo card

This week I made a card for 3 challenges: Mod Squad Blog challenge - Peek A BooStampTV MIUM - Scoring and Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge - Summer Garden.

For the Peek a Boo part, I decided to have a fence. Through the fence you can see the flowers which is my take on the Summer Garden. If you look closely you can see the scoring on the top of the card, which sets off the sentiment.

I die cut the fence out of black cardstock and also out of the white card base. I carefully glued the fence in place by running a glue pen along the outside and fitting it into the open space in the card base.

I stamped the sentiment and butterflies and scored above and below this. I added some lines on the diagonal to make it more interesting.

I stamped the flowers on the inside so they would show through the fence. I used some water based markers to lightly colour the stamp and then once it was stamped, I went over it with some alcohol markers to make it darker. 

I used the following products:

Gina K. Designs: Fabulous Frame and Happy Birthday to You stamp sets
                             Wild Lilac ink
                             White and Black cardstock
Spellbinders Shapeabilities Die D-Lites Decorative Wrought Iron die
ZIG 2 way glue pen
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers: LG5, BP2, BP4
water based markers from my stash


  1. That fence die is fantastic, I do see your pretty little flowers beneath, just like any yard with a gardener in the house! Super cute! Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Mod Squad Challenge Donna, Challenge Host.

  2. I love your garden card which has such a great fence to showcase those blooms.
