Batty for this matted peek-a-boo punch idea...

I made this card for a Halloween challenge recently. While I was making it, I decided I "needed" to have the "Frankenstein" paper punched through to the bottom as a window, and I wanted a double matted look on top.

I love how this looks in real life -- it is so dimensional!

This is so easy to do! Here's how did it.:

Line up the base cardstock and punch window.

Place top layer under punched area, and trace the window with a pencil.

Punch on lines. Keep the layer in the punch.

Using the lines as a guide, move the punch slightly to the left and punch again (you are making the window slightly wider.

  • Repeat on opposite side.

  • Use punch to trim any uneven edges.

  • Layer on card as desired.

Stamps: Stampin' Up!, Batty, Sanded Background; Designer Paper; Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Charcoal Grey, Whisper White Cardstock; Black ink; Glitter Jimmies
