Gatefold Shutter Card

When I saw this video posted by France Martin, I immediately wanted to recreate this card and share with my subscribers.  I thought this card is not only unique, but also stylish.  I wanted to make my version a lot easier and I hope I achieved that on this video.  I chose a simple black and white color scheme and I thought it turned out so pretty.

Materials Used:

Card Base — Very Vanilla Card Stock — cut at 8 ½ by 5 ½, then score at 2 1/8 and 6 3/8

Shutter — Basic Black card stock (2 pieces) — cut at 3 ½ by 4. On the 4 inch side, score both pieces at ½ inch. Then on 3 ½ side pencil mark at 1 ¾ then mark at 2 inches to find the center so you can cut the fish tail for the shutter.

Center Piece — Basic Black card stock — cut at 3 by 5 ½. DSP cut at 2 ¾ x 5 1/4 . Adhere together using your TG or tombow glue. Use your large circle punch or circle framelits to cut a hole on the middle piece. This will create the window to your shutter card.

Shutter DSP — DSP cut at 5 ¼ by 1 7/8.

Bellyband — 1 by 11 inches. Fold on your card to create the bellyband. Don’t make it too tight so it can still slide in and out. Decorate according to your style.

TOOLS:

Score board and scoring tool or stylus
Bone Folder
Stampin Dimensionals or foam dots
Mini Glue Dots
Rhinestones
Adhesive (tape runner of Tombow glue)
Ruler

French Maid Minion Card – A Blooms and Butterflies Color Challenge No. 22

The Blooms & Butterflies Team was given a task to create a card using the colors Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray and Daffodil Delight. It is indeed very challenging. I have made a Minion Card before and it is my most pinned creation on Pinterest. I thought the color combination will be perfect to create a French Maid Minion Card. So here it is.  I have made some adjustments to the card.  I noticed on the photo that the glue dots were showing a little bit so I managed to tuck it in, and also fixed the Minion’s hair so it doesn’t show.
