butterfly shutter card

May 29, 2009

I so enjoyed making the shutter card that I made another — same stash and paper group as below.  This is for an aunt of mine who is going through a rough patch.  She is also a crafter, so I know that she will like the 3d details….again almost no stampin except for the sentiment from Northwoods rubber stamps, SU cardstock and BG dp.  Flowers from my stash — the green one is a Prima (and I insert stamen through the hole for texture, a heart charm was added with a ribbon — thank goodness for glue guns.  The butterfuly is a die cut and embossing from cuttlebug — I used watercolor paper, spritzed with Tattered Angels glimmer mist  (pearl)and then while the paper was still wet,  I added daps of color from my reinkers to shade and then respritzed with a green.  Just playing and I made a few of them so they are all in the stash.  The pink trim on the bottom of the card is from the Basic Grey package — it is a sticker.  I would recommend cutting it within the folds, matching your paper, this will make the sticker more flexible.  butterfly openbutterfly front0001

dove wedding cardA ” shutter”  card — so easy to make  and fits in a standard envie….  12 x 5.5″  score vertically at 2, 4, 8 and 10″, cut horizontal slits 1 1/2″ from the edges.  Fold as shown in picture 2 — not alot of stamping — just the sentiment from SU In my thoughts,  Basic Grey dp cut in strips to fit with the card — a scrap of ribbon from my stash with a small plastic dove from my valentine project (you can buy the dove’s in the bridal aisle at your craft store) and glue gun!  Fun to make — this type of card has so much potential!  This card is for a June family dove inside
