Today the Poulettes have decided to take up a challenge: create a shutter card. It looked like something fun to make, so everybody wanted to give it a try. Let’s see what each one has created by hopping from one blog to another!
You should have arrived from Mylou’s blog. If not, head to the end of this post to start at the beginning.
Here is what I came up with: a masculine Valentines shutter card!
I used this tutorial from StampInTexas to make my shutter card. It’s very easy to make and I’ll make more in the future because they are really fun! I did not want to play with traditional Valentines colours, because my husband likes more masculine colours and patterns.
I used Sahara Sand cardstock as the card base. The front panels were stamped in Pacific Point, Marina Mist and Sahara Sand, with a stamp I never used before: the “angle” one from the Dotty Angles set. I have been wondering how to use it from quite a long time, so I’m really chuffed to bit to have found a nice project for it. I like to use all the stamps from a stamp set and I frequently use the “dotty” stamp, so now I feel happy 🙂
The inside is made with another panel, stamped in the same colours as above, but this time the little dotty lines are from the Watercolour Wings stamp set. The panel was die cut with a circle, to create a window for my sentiment, wich is die cut too with a smaller circle.
The “shutter” part is made with two banner die cuts in Pacific Point. They show the sentiment when you open the card!
Lastly, a Sahara Sand belly band holds everything together. I added two stars in Pacific Point and Marina Mist and another sentiment from Watercolor Wings. The stars have been decorated with a blue gel pen.
That’s it! Now I hope my photo addict husband will like it! 🙂
Stamps: Dotty Angles, Watercolor Wings,
