Today is our third blog hop, and we’re showing a Shutter Card ! I discovered this type of card a few weeks before and indeed it’s great fun to make one!
If you’re coming from the talented Tanja, then you’re already hopping. If not, you can find all the blogs list at the end of this post. You don’t want to miss one as everybody’s got some fabulous cards to show you!
Here is what I came up with:
(sorry for the poor quality of the photos, my husband changed the settings and I didn’t know how to put the usual settings back! )
I must say I love decorating belly bands. I think they give any box or card an elegant finishing touch, and this one is one of my favourite… The pretty peony from You’ve Got This goes so nicely with the frame tag from Everything Eleanor, you’d think they were designed to work together…
The frame tag is stamped in Pool Party on a Pool Party cardstock and then fussy cut. The peony is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with alcool markers. It has then received a coat of Wink of Stella. A few rhinestones were added as dew drops.
The base of the shutter card itself is from Pool Party cardstock and I created a “DSP” with the butterfly from You’ve Got This stamp set in Pool Party ink and the little snowflakes from Sheltering Tree in Mint Macaron. If you’re familiar with this blog, you know I love to create my DSP… maybe it is because I don’t feel as guilty when I cut it as I do when I cut a real DSP paper?
The inside has got a panel from the same handmade DSP. I adhered a Wisteria Wonder panel above, on which I die cut a circle, with the circle framelits. Two Perfect Plum banners make the shutter part below the Wisteria Wonder panel. To decorate the shutter, I stamped one of the tags from Everything Eleanor. Inside, there is a little sentiment from Circle of Spring for Mother’s Day (which occurs in May in France). The butterfly inside reminds of the ones on the outside.
