Supplies

  • Cardstock (Stampin’ Up!® Soft Suede and Cajun Craze used here)
  • Patterned paper (SU Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper used here)
  • Paper trimmer
  • Score tool (optional - Simply Scored used here)
  • Bone folder

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Cut the card base to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". Score from the long side at 2 1/8” and 6 3/8”.

  2. Step 2

    Cut 2 pieces of cardstock to 3 1/2” x 4”. These will be for the two shutters. Score from the long side at 3 1/2”.

  3. Step 3

    Cut 2 pieces of patterned paper to 1 7/8” x 5 1/4”. Layer onto 2 pieces of cardstock cut to 2” x 5 3/8”. These will be layered onto the front gate panels.

  4. Step 4

    For the inner panel, cut patterned paper to 2 7/8” x 5 1/4". Layer onto a 3” x 5 3/8” mat, ensuring that glue is distributed all over the paper panel. Allow the glue to dry completely before the next step.

  5. Step 5

    Cut a 2 3/8” hole in the middle of the matted panel. Save the cutout to use on the front decoration if desired.

  6. Step 6

    Place dimensional foam adhesive along the top and bottom of the panel.

    Adhere the panel in the middle of the center panel of the card base – center left-to-right between the folds and up-and-down.

  7. Step 7

    Stamp the inside sentiment/art on a 1 7/8” circle. Mat onto a 2” circle die cut and adhere the matted circle inside the center of the cut-out circle in the panel.

  8. Step 8

    Measure as shown to find the point 1 3/4” up the short side and 2” down the long side of each shutter. Mark with a pencil.

  9. Step 9

    Draw lines from the point to each corner (opposite the score line) and cut.

    NOTE:

    Ensure that you cut the lines out so they aren’t visible on the finished card.

  10. Cut about 1/2” off each point.

  11. Step 10

    Fold each shutter at the scored line.

    Place the first shutter under the middle panel, placing the middle point of the V-cut in the middle of the circle cutout, over top of the sentiment. Place the shutter such that the fold is a “mountain”. Add double-sided tape to the edge of the shutter.

  12. Remove the liner from the tape on one shutter and carefully close the panel over top. Rub to secure.

  13. Step 11

    Place the second shutter in similarly, coming in from the opposite side of the panel. Ensure either both points go under or both points go over the other shutter points.

  14. Remove the liner from the tape on the second shutter and carefully close the panel over top. Rub to secure.

  15. Step 12

    Open and close the card to admire your work and ensure the mechanism is working correctly.

  16. Step 13

    Create a belly band by lightly folding a 1” x 10” strip of cardstock around the closed card. Use a short strip of double-sided tape to close the belly band in the front.

  17. Decorate the belly band as desired to complete the project.

Marker Marbling

by Lindsay Adreon

Use water-based markers and acetate for this marbling technique.

Supplies

  • White or cream cardstock cut to A2 size
  • Acetate - large enough to cover cardstock
  • Watercolor brush markers (3-4 coordinating colors. Spectrum Aqua Markers used here)
  • Water mister
  • Other supplies as needed to complete the project (Inspired By Stamping “Fresh Bouquet” and “Summer Bouquet” clear stamp sets used here)

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Using the darkest shade of marker, start by making a few lines on the acetate.

    TIP:
    Some lines can merge for the best effect.

  2. Step 2

    Using the second to darkest shade of marker, add color to the sides of the darkest lines. Be sure the colors and lines are touching each other.

  3. Step 3

    Using the third shade of marker, add wider lines of color next to the last lines drawn. Again, be sure the colors and lines are touching each other.

  4. Step 4

    Using the lightest shade of marker, fill in the remaining space of acetate with no color.

  5. Step 5

    With the two darkest colors, go back in and add fine details.

  6. Step 6

    LIGHTLY spray acetate with a fine mist of water and flip onto the cardstock.

  7. Let this sit and soak into the paper.

  8. Step 7

    Remove the acetate, but don't wipe off the color yet!

  9. Step 8

    Spray the acetate a second time, this time more liberally. Flip onto another piece of cardstock.

  10. Step 9

    Using your fingers, you can move the color around and blend it together. Let this sit and soak into the paper.

  11. Step 10

    Remove the acetate.

  12. Step 11

    Let both pieces of cardstock dry and finish cards to your liking.
