Shutter card

What do you think of this shutter card?

While wondering through facebook memories this morning I came across a shutter card I made a few years ago and remembered how much I liked it. I had to youtube how to make it again and found loads of people doing demo, so it’s hard who to credit it too. I didn’t directly follow any one tutorial as I wanted to make it my own size, I just followed the technique.

The coffee cup and sentiment on the front are from the Coffee Cafe stamp set and dies. Don’t you think the little coffee beans are cute? Although the Designer Series Paper I have used on this card has now retired there is plenty of others that would work just as well on a card like this.

Signs Of Santa

Signs of Santa Stamp set is so cute. Wether you like the traditional Christmas cards or cute ones StampinUp has got them all in the autumn / winter catalogue.  I have loved playing with the Signs of Santa stamp set and co-ordinating Santa’s workshop designer series paper. The poppy red and white stripped paper used in this project is textured and feels velvety. One of the designs on the paper matches the stamp set so can be cut out using the Santa’s signpost frame lit dies. I do love how StampinUp all comes together.

This is the project I have mad. I was planning for my August class and had been asked to teach the class how to make these box cards. The box cards fold flat to fit into an envelope so easy to post. The basic box cards takes only 4×12 of card stock to make and the decoration can be as flamboyant and big as you like. This one needs a sentiment on the front and I haven’t decided which one just yet. If you are buying in September don’t forget to use the voucher you earned in August.

The Autumn Winter Catalogue is available from the 5th September 2018 till January 4th 2019.

Other box cards I have made include the Foxy Friends stamps and punch, Sweet Storybook and Rooted in Nature.
