Under the Big Top, Ain't Love Grand

My youngest grandson turns 2 this week!  I hit on the idea to make an interactive card and created these "peek-a-boo" windows using the Curly Label, 1 1/4" square and 1" square punches.  The 1" square punch is from my personal collection.   The card front above is a duplicate during the design process so  the balloon part is slightly different from the one I actually sent below.   How did I do it, you ask.

I punched  an aperture with 1" square punch first, then centred the Curly Label punch over it to make the frame.  On some scrap Whisper White cardstock, I punched a 1 1/4" square in the same colour as the frame, and cut off 1/4" along one side, scored it at 1/4" on the short side to form hinge and attached it to the underside of the curly label frame.  I punched out curly labels in Whisper White so that I could stamp an image and attach it to the peek-a-boo frame part which  I then adhered to my card base. 

Alternatively, you could simply cut 3 sides of the curly label with a craft knife.  I found it easier and less hassel to use the punch method in order to eliminate the risk of doing damage to myself if the craft knife slipped!

Here's the inside of the card.  I stamped on scraps of Whisper White various images from Under the Big Top, coloured  and cut out the images and adhered them to the pop-up mechanisms.  The drapes were cut free hand from the Big Top DSP.  I used images from Every Little Bit to stamp inside the peek-a-boo frames.  I hope he likes it.
