you can get 3 cards out of one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 CS.- This is the inside of the finished card on the right. If you open and close the card really fast, he looks like he is clapping!
I have made this card with many different sizes but the basics of the mechanism is the same.
The base of this card is 11x smidgen more than 2 8/10 inches (1/3 of the 8 1/2) folded at 5 1/2 inch on the 11 inch side. (Long ways)
I added red gloves (hand cut from 2x2 piece of red carstock to fit) and glued it as shown to the 2 outer rectangle corners.
I attached money by putting on a little bit of tombow tape onto the wrist area of the gloves while it was flat and the money folds into the popup. It was a fun way of giving money for Christmas.
When you put the card on the tape it floats like this and looks like the snowman is holding it out.
I took some DSP 6 1/2 x 5 1/2 - you can get 4 sheets out of a 12x12 paper if you cut it carefully - score it at 3 inches and at 6 inches along the 6 1/2 side and 1/2 inch along the 5 1/2 side.-cut out the corner and one of the 1/2 inch tabs as shown on the right and then punch the top with the envelope punch to make a little groove to complete the package.

The pink one below used the silver glimmer paper with the start punch. Again, easy peasy.

I really love the tin of cards and got the stampset to match to make the cards inside but I used the Perpetual Birthday Calendar set to stamp the months on each of the tabs.
Maybe Stampin Up will put 12 dividers next time in the kit?
When I gifr these, I also like to put a pen - you can use a velcro tab on the pen and the lid to attach if you want.
Hopefully I will be better this year sending out my cards.....

One of my boy's teacher this year is crazy about Star Wars. He has movie nights at school and has lots of paraphernalia on his desk. He was the teacher for my other boy in the past and I had found some Star Wars designer paper then, but this time I had no luck finding anything appropriate. So Undefined again to the rescue- it is now retired through Stampin' Up but I bought a bunch of extra carving material just for situations like this. I found some pictures on the internet that I thought would work and printed it and used it to carve out the images. I found the font TIE-WING on line for free and printed on whisper white CS using my printer. I printed 4 on one sheet then cut it out then stamped the images above the sentiment. The Yoda is stamped in Pear Pizazz with same color CS to layer the stamped piece.
Easy cards and now with my new stamps I can make many many more. I have little stamping space so I don't mount the carved rubber on the wood blocks but they are thick enough to work without the wood.
I also carved out too much of Yoda's eyes so when I stamp it, it looks wonky. Since Stampin' Up has coordinated everything, I just used the marker to fill in the eyes a bit and it's just fine.....
