I spent a very long time trying to figure out how to make a peek-a-boo card..One of my viewers had said she couldn’t figure it out and asked if I would give it a try.  It was a nightmare, and I can understand why she struggled with it.  I wanted to throw in the towel a couple of times, and Rich got home from playing basketball, just in time to hear me screaming at the computer…  Let’s just say the instructions weren’t all together clear enough for me to understand.

I eventually managed to make one card..It’s not perfect but at least it’s done.  I wanted to make a video of it and get it all done, but honestly, I was exhausted by the time it was finished, and all I really wanted to do was cry a little…maybe just a whimper.

I know know exactly how to explain this card so that viewers can make it and know what they are doing wrong..If you alter the size of the circle punch used to make the peek-a-boo, then you have to alter everything else to accommodate that change.  I’m pretty sure that’s what my viewer was doing wrong, as I didn’t have the same size punch and used a die that was close, but not exactly the same, so my card didn’t work well.  I feel like I’ve made real strides by figuring that out, but it took me at least four other mistakes before I ever got to the hole punch.   Now you know why I was yelling at the computer, but thankfully, not what I said.
