Impression Obsession Peek-a-Boo Kitty {Have a Heart Challenge}

Hey crafty friends! Do you have some adorable two-sided patterned paper hanging around? Yes? Great! Today I'll show you a SUPER SIMPLE (anyone can do this) card using some of your favorite patterned papers.

This cute card is seriously so simple, you'll wonder why you've never tried it before. Are you ready?  Grab a piece of two-sided patterned paper and trim it the size (or smaller than) your card base. There's no right or wrong way. Then, choose a coordinating color card base. 

Do you know how to fold paper? PERFECT - you'll nail this one. Here's all you do: FOLD. THE. PAPER. 

Bam, done. 

See? I told you you could do it! Just pull one corner of that paper and fold it over however you want. Add a smidge of adhesive to keep it down. After that, I stamped the adorable Peek-a-Boo Kitty stamptrimmed him and glued him down so he'd look like he was peeking over the edge of my paper. 
Okay, I hear you. There are one or two of you out there that are saying "Well that's cute, but I don't know how to fold paper." ;) (I'm totally kidding - because I know you can TOTALLY do this.) But if for some reason, this isn't your cup of tea, here's another cute idea - no folding involved. Just grab a strip of patterned paper and try THIS card instead. 
Stamps that play peek a boo are adorable, but don't be dismayed if you don' have a stamp this style. What cute images do YOU have that you can still tuck behind a piece of paper? I bet you'll find a friendly critter or a cute human stamp that can peek out from an element on your card. 
Today's post is part of the latest cardmaking challenge on the Impression Obsession blog. The theme is Have a Heart - and now it's YOUR TURN! Dig through your stash of Impression Obsession stamps and dies, and see what you have that works for the challenge! Then link it up at the IO blog because you might just win a gift certificate to the shop! Over on the blog, you'll also find a list of the design team members who are sharing some LOVE themed cards to kick off the challenge. 

Don't have any Impression Obsession stamps and dies? I hate to be an enabler, but you really should check out their shop - every time I look, I see something I never noticed before. They have a HUGE selection, in EVERY style and theme! (#sorrynotsorry)
