How to Make an Interactive Card Like a Boss!


hi and welcome to Lisa's stamps to do

the fun fold card that I'm sharing with

you today has a fun telescope opening on

the inside of the card the peekaboo

shutter card is lots of fun to create

I'm gonna walk you through the steps so

it's easy for you to put together at

home I'm going to be sharing two cards

with you one I'll be demonstrating and

the other one is an alternative to this

exact same fun fold you'll find the

pictures cutting dimensions and supplies

down in a link in the video description

below if this is your first time

visiting my channel I would love to have

you subscribe click the subscribe button

down below and next to it that bell icon

when you click that you'll get

notifications when I'm live right here

on YouTube as well as when I share a new

video let's head over the stamp table

and let's get started on today's project

I'm going to be using my Stampin trimmer

with both the scoring and the cutting

blade I love the trimmer since you can

keep both blades on the track at the

same time they navigate up and down out

of the way love the clear guides you can

see the measurements as well we're

starting with a piece of pear pizzaz

cardstock this measures five and a half

by eight and a half and the very first

score line is going to be a two and 1/8

inch there's a nice straight ledge here

at the top which will make sure that

you've got it nice and straight and then

once you're happy with your alignment go

ahead and score with the light blade I'm

going to push that off to the side for

just a second this is going to have a

gatefold and the easiest way is to go

ahead and fold on the score line I'm

going to be using my bone folder to

reinforce those score lines as well the

other end is going to come in and meet

it I found that by scoring both of them

if I was off just a little bit they

didn't meet well here in the center so

that's just a good tip for you this is

going to be the base of the card next we

have two pieces of pear pizzaz cardstock

these measure three and a half by four

inches onto three and a half inch side

we are going to score at the half inch

mark so I'm going to use this side of

the trimmer this time so I have a little

bit more to hold on to I'll line it up

on the half inch mark and I'll score and

I'm going to do the same thing now on

the other piece lining this one up as

well and scoring we're going to be

creating two independent panels that

will make the shutter mechanism we're

going to do the exact same thing on both

of these this is the three and a half

inch mark going this way and we need to

determine the halfway point which would

be one in 3/4 inch so I'm going to line

this up here at the ledge at 1 and 3/4

I've navigated that scoring blade up and

out of the way and I'm gonna use my

pencil right inside the track here and

I'm going to make a pencil mark I'll

open up the trimmer and I'll rotate the

cardstock now so this is the four inch

mark and halfway is two inches

now we're going to do the exact same

thing on this one

with the scoreline here at the top I'm

going to go ahead and bend it so you can

see it a little bit better what we're

going to do is we're going to create a V

from the center of this pencil line

which is the halfway point to the

outside edges on both sides you can use

your scissors but I prefer to use my

trimming blade because I find that it's

actually going to be a lot straighter

what I'm going to do now is I'm going to

navigate the tip of this card stock here

inside this black strip this is where

it's going to cut and then I'm also

going to pivot the top half of this so

that that intersection that cross is

going to fall right between the clear

strips here once I'm happy with the

placement I'll bring up my dark blade

and I'm going to cut right up to the

center hold onto the card stock lift the

blade and you can see whether or not

you're aligned and then we're going to

do the exact same thing now on this side

so we're going to align it here at the

top pivoting this so it's inside the

track I'll bring my blade up here to the

top and then we'll cut that's going to

leave us this now we're going to

actually flip it over and use this side

or you can erase the pencil mark now I'm

going to do the exact same thing now on

this piece

my next step is going to be to adhere

some designer series paper this comes

from the ornate garden designer paper

double-sided like almost all the Stampin

Up paper's beautiful gold accents on one

side I'm going to use my pattern side up

I'm gonna flip this over and I'm using

my Stampin co+ and I'm going to add

adhesive to the back side to make it

easier for my hand I'm gonna open this

up here on my silicone craft sheet and

I'm looking to leave a margin around

that designer series paper as equal as

possible and then we'll tack that in

place we're gonna do the exact same

thing now with this piece placing it on

the other panel to the front of this

card once it's together it's going to

look like this this piece of pear pizzaz

cardstock measures three by five and a

half inches I did cut a coordinating

piece of designer series paper that I'm

gonna layer on top and again I'll use my

adhesive you're gonna want to cover this

a little bit more generously because we

are going to die-cut an opening in this

I'm gonna hold this horizontally to make

it a little bit easier for my hand and

then we'll tack that in place I've

chosen one of the circle dies from the

layering circles dies love the cascading

sizes I've pulled out another one as

well and you also receive the scalloped

circles great for layering this measures

about two and five-eighths inch in

diameter what you're going to want to do

is you're gonna want to Center this in

the middle of this panel and then you're

gonna die cut the opening that has left

us this this is where the shutter

mechanism is going to come behind the

next thing we're going to do is we're

gonna die cut a circle that's slightly

larger and from that same die set I

pulled out this one this is roughly 2

and 3/4 inch you want this circle that's

going to go behind this opening to be

slightly larger so that you can

manipulate it to get proper alignment

I'm going to set this aside for right

now and I'm going to ready this panel

let's flip this over and we are going to

add one dimensional and each of the four

corners you are not going to remove the

dimensionals from the top I found that

this is the easiest way to get the

mechanism behind her by only anchoring

the bottom

I'm gonna use my take your pick tool

with the paper piercing tool attachment

to help you remove those bottom

dimensionals we've got our card base

here and let's go ahead and open this up

I'd like to open it as flat as possible

and you're looking to align this just

Center between those two score lines and

again because I've only got dimensionals

exposed on the bottom

I'm gonna look primarily at the bottom

Center and then tack that in place

remember the top is still unattached

remember our two shutter pieces well

these are the pieces that we're going to

have to reinforce those score lines so

this is that half-inch score line that

we originally created my pencil marks

are on the backside I chose not to even

bother erasing those I wanted to

reinforce the score lines even though

I'm going to open these up two reasons I

want them to be visible and the second

reason is I want to work with this flat

there's going to be one panel for each

side of the inside of the card let's

start with the right one the silicone

craft sheet is going to assure that I

don't get any adhesive on my work

surface adhesive liquid glue and hot

glue will not stick to it which is going

to keep this nice and sticky free

remember here our card this is the

opening at the top I am going to turn

this here is the opening because I'm

gonna work right along this crease I'm

gonna take this piece and I'm gonna

slide it right behind there leaving the

sticky part exposed to the top and what

I'm looking to do is align this the best

that I can from side to side and you're

going to align this edge just at that

score line once you're happy with the

placement all you have to do is close

that panel and that sticky edge is going

to attach itself here now we're going to

turn it and we're gonna go to this other

side and we're gonna do the exact same

thing we're gonna add adhesive here and

here's the edge we're going to tuck this

behind or in front of this other panel

and then we're gonna do the exact same

thing looking to Center this now very

important down here you're gonna want to

make sure that it's not crooked because

you want these panels to be lined up so

I'm looking to make sure that I have

these as even as I possibly can

I'm also looking to see that they're not

sticking out here at the bottom once I'm

happy with this I'm going to go ahead

and press and seal that edge as well and

you can see this is the mechanism this

now is the top so we're gonna flip this

around but we are not going to adhere

this just yet because we're going to

insert our greeting I'm gonna protect my

work surface with a small piece of grid

paper here is that larger circle that we

die-cut I'm choosing to use memento

black ink pad for my greeting because

it's a small script greeting and I want

to make sure it's predominant through

that telescope opening I'm going to go

ahead and ink

sup and this is gonna get stamped right

here in the center I thought it was a

little bit plain so I'm going to add a

little bit of a background using a

coordinating ink to the designer series

paper this is terracotta tile the one

thing I love about Stampin Up products

is the color coordination this floral

image is coming from the ornate style

stamp set you'll see there's lots of

pretty floral images in here now you may

look at it and think you have to color

it in and we are not going to color it

at all today so consider using colored

ink to correspond with your designer

papers I'm going to go ahead and ink

this up and I know this is a very strong

pigmented color so I'm gonna stamp off

once twice on my scratch paper and then

I'm gonna gravitate those flowers here

and I'll do that same thing one more

time and then I'm going to turn this and

stamp more flowers here on this side now

that our greeting is finished let's go

ahead and flip that over we're gonna use

that stamp and seal plus again we're

going to line it on the back side I've

got the sticky part here to my finger to

help me navigate it and you're gonna see

here's that panel and then the two

shutter mechanisms we are going to slide

this behind here by it sticking to your

finger it's going to allow you to pivot

and place this where you want it once

you have the position in just right all

you have to do is just press down on the


and that circles now has stuck to the

back side now we're ready to take off

the dimensionals here and then all we

have to do is just tack that in place so

you can see here how this opens and

closes for that really fun shudder

peekaboo opening now let's decorate the

outside once again I'm going to protect

my work surface and I've mounted that

very large floral image from the exact

same stamp set just because it's large

doesn't mean you can't use it you don't

have to use the whole thing but because

it's sizable I'm gonna leave it face-up

on my work surface and I'm going to take

that same color terracotta tile and I'm

going to ink it this way now I know I

don't have to ink the whole thing

because obviously this is a lot smaller

than what I'm going to need and just

like before I know this is going to be

too strong so I'm going to stamp it off

once and again twice to reduce that

coverage this now is going to get

stamped here on that small square of

whisper white cardstock that piece

measures 2 and 3/4 by 2 and 3/4 now the

greeting I use on the inside

I'm also gonna use a greeting from that

same stamp set for the outside and that

stamp set is called ornate thanks and

you're gonna see how they work really

beautifully together these large

greetings can be coupled with these

other small scripts to create a custom

phrase but because I want a little bit

of visual interest I am actually going

to place this on the diagonal and one of

the reasons I love the grid paper is

because of those grid lines because I

can't do too many things straight so I'm

going to align the top point here and

the bottom point here and this time I'm

going to use basic gray ink I don't want

the black to be too overpowering to the

front of my card but I still want it to

show up so I've mounted the words so

grateful so we'll go ahead and we'll

link those up and those are going to get

stamped here that subtle background

really allows that greeting to stand out

and just like we've done before I'm

going to add a layer to this so that

it'll be a little bit sturdier on the

front of this card and here's another

piece of pure pizzazz cardstock this

measures 2 and 7/8 by 2 and 7/8 I opted

to keep this very very narrow not to

take away from the designer series paper

now it's a matter of just adding it to

the card front now I've done this before

make sure your cards going in the right

direction before you start and I'm going

to do this on the diagonal but obviously

this panel needs to open so you're only

going to place dimensionals on this left

aside so let me give you a couple tips

we're going to start with the first one

right behind the word so and then we're

gonna take two others and we're gonna

cascade those in a very small triangle

here then we'll remove those paper

backings looking to keep the top and the

bottom point aligned to that crease I'm

looking for the center of my card and

then when I'm happy with the placement

we'll just tack that down when you open

this now you'll see that the

dimensionals are not visible which does

leave a beautiful presentation for the

opening of this card now the last thing

I decided to do was add some

embellishment to this just to play up a

little bit of color the holiday

rhinestone jewels are among my favorites

because there's a huge merit of colors

here then I decided to work a little bit

outside the box so I'm going to use

these light greenish blue color ones

that are here

I thought they picked up that green

really nicely without competing with the

yellow I'm gonna choose one of the

larger ones here with my take your pick

tool attachment they have glue dots

already on the

which makes them really easy to use I'll

place one inside that Daisy here I have

a smaller one for this flower here and

then finally I'll add one more down here

I'm trying to create a triangle

formation just so it's visually

interesting such a pretty and a very

simple card to put together with the

individual pieces now I have one other

to share with you that uses an entirely

different stamp set this one uses the

stamp set called under my umbrella it

does have a coordinating umbrella

builder punch which punched out the

umbrella and the handle I use the

Stampin blends markers I do just a

simple panel here that's gonna allow me

to open this telescope and there you can

see that peekaboo shutter opening on

this card as well I would love to know

which one is your favorite do you favor

the floral simpler look or do you love

the bull look of this magenta madness

designer series paper with the Highland

Heather accents leave me a comment below
