Fancy Folds Blog hop presents the Shutter Card

Hello and welcome to the Fancy Fold Design Team April Blog Hop. You are currently visiting with me, Gina Connor AKA Emerald Kreations from Northern Ireland. This month our blog hop is focusing on the Shutter Card. I have never made one of these cards before so it was a treat to make.

I am actually making this card for a 21st birthday party that we are invited to on Friday evening. We have an old saying in the UK – “killing two birds with one stone” , which means that I am saving time designing this Shutter card for the Fancy Fold Blog Hop and making a 21st birthday card for my friends daughter.

I love the colours in the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series pack and thought that they would be fitting for a 21st birthday card. My colour theme is Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Silver.

A belly band keeps this card closed. I deliberately kept it simple as the paper that is on the front of the card is stunning and I didn’t want to take away from it. As you can see I’ve made this card for a 21st. So I have cut the numbers out of Silver Foil sheets with Large Number Framelits which are unfortunately retiring, so if you would like these Framelits then I suggest you order them as quickly as possible because once they are sold out they are gone!

Here is the card front with the belly band removed.

See how you beautiful the paper is! I layered it on Bermuda Bay card and the put that onto the Pool Party Base card.

This is what it looks like when you open it. The sentiment is from Cake Soiree and stamped in Bermuda Bay ink. The paper is also from Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Pack.

    Dear Gina, I like your card so much. I love the colour-combination and it’s really fine, that you could “kill two birds with one stone” with this card ;-).
