Score the card stock (see the Video Tutorial below) at 3" on each side.  The outer sides score across the body to create this interactive, moving card with just a few fancy folds!  You can use the Simply Scored board or the Stampin' Trimmer and score this card easily!
Create a 'Belly Band' to hold this card in place!  Simply using a scrap from the Park Lane Designer Series Paper - wrap around the closed 4" card.  Adhere the flaps so that it will hold the card in place.
 
Stamping this stunning flower from the Hostess Exclusive stamp set Bloom with Hope.  Using the Jet Black Stazon ink on the Whisper White card stock.  Add color by coloring the full flower in Hello Honey ink with the Aqua Pen.  Darken the center of the flower.  Overlay, using the Aqua Pen, the Blackberry Bliss ink over the Hello Honey for a colorful card!
It moves!!  Much like that fun line from Frankenstein - 'He's ALIVE!' - it really does move!  Adhere the 3" square of the Park Lane Designer Series Paper to the exterior only half of the one side of the card - so that the card doesn't get glued closed - lol!
 
Stamp the pretty daisy on the inside flap that will not be visible when closed - it's a surprise within a hand-stamped, moving card!  The stamped sentiment will be covered by the folds and the 3" square of the Park Lane Designer Series Paper.  I love how pretty the Blackberry Bliss ink looks on the Hello Honey card stock.

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
