Peek-a-Boo Graduation Card

Peek-a-Boo Graduation Card


I had seen a tutorial for a Peek-a Boo Card where the image on the front of the card appears to transform into a second image as the card is opened.  I thought these would make great graduation cards for my triplets who just graduated from high school.

Peek-A-Boo Graduation Card

When the cards are closed, you can see their senior portraits , and as the cards are opened, their senior portraits “transform” into pictures from their first day of kindergarten.


I used black and heavy weight white card stock.  The congratulations stamp is from the “Curly Cute” set by Stampin’ Up and was stamped with versafine onyx black ink.  The class of 2017 was a digital image I found online (although I am no longer seeing it there).  I found the same image on etsy (for 2018) HERE by createsvg4you.  The sentiment inside was computer generated.

To create the frames and openings, I used a die from the Spellbinders “Artist Trading Cards” set (S3-208) and a We R Memory Keepers Frame Punch Board.

I added a panel of acetate over the back image (the one you see when the card is closed) which helped my second image slide more easily as the card was opened.  (Unfortunately, it’s adding to the glare in the photo.)

I made three of these cards.  Same exact design; different photos.
