Shut­ter sur­prise

Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Your Letters -

I’d like to share a 17th birth­day card I re­cently made. As the card is so large, I had to make a com­ple­men­tary gift box to store it in! I de­cided to craft a dou­ble tri-shut­ter card, which was per­fect for the oc­ca­sion as I could add lots of dif­fer­ent em­bel­lish­ments and top­pers to each of the lit­tle pan­els.

To cre­ate the card, I made two tri-shut­ter cards from pat­terned pa­per and then joined them to­gether be­hind the cen­tral panel. As you can see, I cov­ered each of the pan­els with lots of lit­tle stick­ers, glit­tery num­bers and rib­bon bows. The fin­ished card can be eas­ily folded down and placed in the hand­made gift box, so it made a lovely birth­day sur­prise. Lisa Don­ald­son, Stock­ton-on-Tees
