No Peeking Fancy Fold Moving Hand-Stamped Card

I am from a family with a dry sense of humor.  Often in the midst of a crisis we can be found making a joke that will make others around us smile.  Holidays are usually filled with the sound of laughter, jokes and tons of talking.  So this hand-stamped card represents the wacky humor and many surprises you are bound to find in our family.
 
See this How-To Video below on this cool folded card!  You, too, can create a quick and cool card quickly!!

Create this inter-active card with:
Old Olive card stock (12"x12" #124284)
Whisper White card stock (#100730)
Crumb Cake card stock (#120953)
Cherry Cobbler ink (#126966)
Christmas Tagables Polymer stamp set (#134623)
Season of Style Designer Series Paper (#132340)
Stampin' Trimmer (#126889)
1-3/4" Scallop Circle punch (#119854)
Stampin' Sponges (#101610)
Wrap up this gift with this cute sentiment from the Christmas Tagables polymer stamp set.  This silly and wacky stamp set pulled together to create a fun card. 
 
Stamp the 'Absolutely no peeking...' with Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White card stock.  Punch with the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch and with the Stampin' Sponge in Cherry Cobbler ink.
 
If you are at all like me... tell me NOT to do something??  It is ALL I can do to honor your wishes - lol... I will either end up doing it or just mulling it over until I do - lol.  My ever honest husband would be the one who wouldn't open this card until the 25th and it's STILL Funny!
 
Using a strip of Crumb Cake card stock, create a 'belly band' that will help hold this interactive card closed.  This 'peeking' is a fun way to embellish this card.
With a 4" x 12" piece of Old Olive card stock create this folded card.  (See how with the easy video tutorial below!)  Using the Season of Style polka dot patterned page to frame the belly band and cover the stamped crumb cake card stock inside!
Making this 3"x3" piece of Crumb Cake card stock stamped with 'Do Not Open....' with Cherry Cobbler for a cohesive and quick look.  Having this second piece be slightly smaller allows for it to remain 'hidden'.  With multiple panels giving a fun interactive look... you are sure to WOW while adding a few smiles to this Holiday Season!
When Opened you have 3 interactive panels... continuing the smiles with the Whisper White inside panel that says:
"This gift was handmade so no, no you can not return it!" (It's OK - Giggle here with me - lol.)
With 3 silly sentiments prettily penned, you will surprise those who see this with a fun sense of humor.  WOW with the interactive and hidden surprises!
 
See this easy HOW-TO Video on creating this card!
 
Sometimes holidays are hard, we remember the hard parts of the year, those we've lost and miss... sometimes sending a fun card is a great way to show you care while send a smile to those who need it!
 
I'm so glad that you came by!  Come and visit often as I try to post daily.  Bring your family and friends along for the fun and join me with my classes (in-person and on-line).
 
If you know someone or are someone who has a funny sense of humor... you are sure to appreciate this card.  I hope that it brings you a smile or two.  Cheer someone during this busy and sometimes blue season with a little humor and WOW them with this fun and fast interactive card.

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
