You're the Icing on the Cake!
The NEW Stampin' Up! "Best Of" Series is taking off like gangbusters!  This new series of stamps features numerous images from past, popular sets plus a NEW, never before seen image!  Some of the past images have been resized, making them a great addition to your stamp collection even if you have the original stamp set!  You can find out more details about the "Best Of" Series by CLICKING HERE!

This card, has what I'm calling a "peek-a-boo" window on the front. The stamped image is actually on the INSIDE of the card.  Here's how to make your own "peek-a-boo" window:
  1. Punch a whole in the front of your card.  I used the 1 3/4" Circle Punch on this one.  
  2. Stamp and image, color and glitter as desired.
  3. Using the same size punch as used on the front of the card, punch out your image.
  4. Mount the image THROUGH THE FRONT OF THE HOLE so that it's aligned perfectly.  
  5. I created the scallop ring around the hole by punching the 1 3/4" Circle on Daffodil Delight cardstock.  I then used the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch over the NEGATIVE (meaning the scrap piece where the hole was punched from) and lined it up to create what you see.  Simple!
