I have so enjoyed being a member of the Design Team called Fancy Folds each month. It’s a fun challenge for me to take a piece of cardstock and create something over the top or out of the ordinary….but still keeping it simple. Today on the Fancy Folds Blog Hop, I will be sharing a fun shutter card technique with you and from here you can enjoy a BLOG HOP to see what my fellow demonstrators from around the world have created.
If you are on the HOP right now, you have just joined me from my demonstrator friend Astrid from Austria. If you are starting here at Simply Simple Stamping, you will find her card at the end of the hop so make sure you go through them all.
It’s funny that the Design Team chose the shutter card for today because I had actually been working on this card a couple of weeks ago. They must have been in my head.
In the past I have always created shutter cards with a circle punch but look how cool it turned out with the Tailored Tag punch?
How about a video on how I created today’s card? Let’s go!
You can create this card with a lot of different punches or Framelits too. The key is to make sure they are smaller than 2 inches (the width of the banner punch). Experiment and have fun!
Here are my measurements for my Manly Shutter Card:
- Night of Navy – 8 ½” x 5 ½”, score at 2 ⅛” and 6 ⅜”
- 3″ x 5 ¼”
- (2) 2″ x 2 ¾”, score at ½”
- True Gentleman Designer Paper – 2″ x 5 ⅜”
- 1 ½” x 9 ½”, score at 2 ½”, 2 ⅝”, 7″, and 7 ⅛”
- Very Vanilla – (2) 2″ x 2 ¾”
- Very Vanilla Baker’s Twine – 9″
