If you missed our live this week, you’ll want to catch the replay to see another peek through card idea!

This time we focussed on how to make this design using dies that aren’t bundled together. It’s amazingly easy to pick from your own stash of paper crafting tools for a totally doable, fun design!

Compared to the peek through card I shared in a video the other day, doesn’t this one look different?

Amazing how colour and dies make such a big impact!

Another Peek Through Card Idea
Dainty Delight stamps and the Basic Borders Dies create a fun peek through card!

Handmade cards featuring peek throughs are one of my favourite types of cards to make!


  • They’re easy
  • they’re eye catching, and
  • they are an unexpected surprise in the mailbox!

All ways to make your card stand out on your friend’s display!

What’s the first thing you notice? The bit of bling along the edge? Or maybe the cool edging shape and design? Possibly the silver embossed, stamped image?

I did do a separate video to show you how to make this card with the Everyday Details stamps and dies. With a cool and totally different and surprising edge, you might want to check it out. See it now by heading over to this peek through card post.

And don’t miss the special little hint for the Everyday Details Dies in that video to add to your own stamping tips.

Take a Closer Look at Your Dies

What’s unique about this card?

We pieced together the peek through opening and the side decoration using two different dies.

So don’t feel like you need to only limit yourself to a die set that has an edging die! Anything goes here!

Another Peek Through Card Idea

We pulled in the Deckled Rectangle Dies for the peek through opening. Then used one of the super great Basic Borders Dies (retiring at the end of April ’24). If you don’t have either of these sets of dies, you’ll want to head over to my online store and pick them up! The Basic Borders are discounted right now for only $24 Cdn!!
