It's another Stamp Simply Challenge! This one called for a fun fold, anything other than your standard or top folding card.

I went with what I have always called a box card, it opens up just like a box, and you can put something inside if it's relatively flat. Should you be interested in trying this, I made an attempt a while back to show how to here.
Julie Koerber also has a fabulous tutorial to do this same thing here.

It uses a sheet of printer paper for the folded portion, so I adhere a piece of cardstock to the back so it's not to flimsy.

I stamped the mug in memento ink and colored it in with my copics.
The paper is from LAD pretty papers line and for the inside of the card I just stamped the snowflake on bordering blue to mimic the pattern in the paper.

Here is the rest of the team-

I've done a box card before and love the idea of opening it up and finding a treat like that. Very cute. Pat

At first I thought it was just a gate-fold card and I thought "whew! I'm glad I didn't do that, too!" because I almost did. But it's way more than a gate-fold and very cool! I'll have to check out your tutorial sometime!

I laughed when I saw your post AJ-- I was so close to doing this too! The "recipe" I have is for a square box - You can check it out here:

This is very cool! I am a big fan of interactive cards (even if I don't do them often myself - ha!) and this is just awesome!

Thank you for your kind words on my blog. :) I am very familiar with your work (thru SCS and Unity) and am a big fan! :)
