Guest Designer Birthday Sundaes

I am so flattered and honored to be a guest designer
 when Kristie emailed me
and wondered if I would be interested in being a guest designer
I had to read the email twice
my answer.....
thanks to Kristie and all the wonderful designers
here is my card
it is a gatefold peek-a-boo card

started with a piece of card stock PTI Autumn Rose
5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 2 1/8 and 6 3/8 fold to center to make a gatefold card
2 x 5 3/8 (two of these) one one each side PTI Kraft
1 7/8 x 5 1/4 (two of these) one for each side
Spellbinders scalloped circle PTI Dark Chocolate
Circle PTI Vintage cream PTI circle stamp PTI Tag-its #5
circle PTI Kraft celebrate stamp from Studio G
two buttons one tied with some embroidery floss
Pattern Paper My Mind's Eye Find and Dandy
some ribbon and a scalloped edge down with my fiskar border punch
cut circle in top center of  3 1/4 x 5 1/2 center this piece inside the card use score tape on the top
and bottom to hold in place
use the same size circle cut and stamp image to be revealed
glue in circle opening
I used a stamp Make a wish from stampin up
colored in with some copic markers
3 x 2 then fork the ends (two of these) they will look like fat banners they will hide your image
 when you fold the card shut
 place the banners to the side folds in the card lining them up to hide your center image
use score tape right side up so when you shut the card the banners will adhere to the sides
of the card
here is a little video
