A Simple Double Shutter Card

Having a template for a double shutter card is a great thing to have in your card making arsenal. They are easy to make, can be done in an endless variety of papers, motifs, themes and you can dress them up or down any way you want. AND a double shutter card is PERFECT for when you want to send something but don’t have a lot to say because there’s naturally not a ton of room to write a message! Unless of course, you want to fill the back of the whole card, at which point you have TONS of space. So you can see why this is such a great idea to have handy!

For this project I used the Rubbernecker Nested Rectangle Scallop w/Holes, Leaf Group, Small Flowers #2 and Blooms Your Way

Click through to see how to make a simple double shutter card you can use for any reason!

The Card Base

  • The card base was made using a pre scored A2 sized card from  White Double Shutter Card kit.
  • Use your bone folder to sharpen the folds of the card.
  • Cut the Carta Bella Home Again designer papers to fit the card base. I used two different papers to add interest to the card.
    • Cut 4 2.00″ x 2 3/4″ pieces of paper in each design.
    • Cut 1 4 1/8″ x 2 3/4″ pieces of paper in each design.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the designer paper and attach them to the card base.
  • Cut 4 1/4″ strips of white cardstock and 1 4 1/8″ strips of white cardstock.
  • Attach the white strips to the card base using double stick tape.

Come learn why a double shutter card is one of my most useful types of cards to make and send!

The Rectangle Scalloped Layers

  • Cut two scalloped layers using white cardstock.
  • Pull out your Stamp-a-ma-jig set and make ready to use to line up the red rubber sentiment and acrylic block.
  • Secure the stamp on an acrylic block, apply ink, secure the block in place against the Stamp-a-ma-jig and stamp on the clear image sheet.
  • Line the image sheet up over the white scalloped layer where you want the sentiment to be stamped and secure the Stamp-a-ma-jig against the corner of the clear image sheet and secure in place.
  • Remove the image sheet, apply ink to the stamp and stamp the sentiment by lining up the acrylic block against the Stamp-a-ma-jig.
  • Check out this video to see how to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up your stamped images.  It’s makes so much more sense when you see it in action.  I have wasted lots of paper over the years by thinking I could line up a red rubber stamp and get it perfectly straight where I wanted it.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the sentiment layer and attach it to the middle of the card base.

This sweet double shutter card is adorned with a simple paper flower bouquet - click through to see how easy it is to make!

The Flower Bouquet

  • Cut the small flowers using white cardstock.
  • Apply a light shade of Antique Linen ink to the flowers using a mini applicator. I wanted the flowers to match the flowers in the paper but needed to add the light shade of Antique Linen so they would show up well against the white scalloped layer.
  • Place the flowers face up on a molding pad and form them using the small round stylus.
  • Attach the flower layers together using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the flower centers and attach pre made black Nuvo Crystal Drops.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the leafy branch and attach it to the white scalloped layer using glossy accents.
  • Attach the flowers to the branch using glossy accents.
  • Hand cut a couple thin strips of cardstock to use to extend the blower bouquet branches and attach to the end of the leaf branch using glossy accents.
  • Create a black multi loop bow and attach it to the bouquet using glue dots.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the left side of the flower bouquet layer and attach it to the front of the card base.

Z Fold Window Card

I love the spring feel of this z fold window card with the brightly colored papers, flowers and awnings and all the kitty cats.  I have been wanting to create a z fold card with a window or windows for a while but wasn’t quite sure how it would look.  When I first started I thought I would use only one window but ended up using four.  It looks like the outside of a house with it’s awning and fenced in yard.  I couldn’t resist using the beautiful designer paper in the background even though it doesn’t really look like the outside of a house.  LOL!

For this card I used the Rubbernecker Window 4 Pane, Borders #2, Grass, Tall Terracotta Pots, Picket Fence, Leaf Group, Beach Chairs, Flower Buds and Cats.

I love the spring feel of this z fold window card with the brightly colored paper, flowers and awnings. Click thru to see the step by step instructions.

The Z Fold Card Base and Box

  • Use the pre-scored Z Fold Box Card  kit to create the base.
  • Cut 2 2.5″ x 4.00″ designer paper layers  and one 5.25″ x 4.00″ layer and attach them to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Use white cardstock to cut the four windows and attach them to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Use bright pink cardstock to cut the awning layers and attach them to the windows using mounting tape.

Create the Box with Fence and Grass Layers

  • Cut an 11.00″ x 1.50″ grass layer using green cardstock. Note:  place the strip of green cardstock on the cutting platform, place the die at one end and run through the machine.  Place the die where the first die cut ended, line it up and run through the machine a second time.
  • Score the grass layer at 5.50″ and 8.25″.
  • Cut several sections of picket fence using white cardstock and attach them together using gloss accents.
  • Score the fence at 5.50″ and 8.25″.
  • Create a fence and grass layer 5.50″ wide, score at 2.75″ to fit on the inside two sections of the box and attach them to the card base using double stick tape.
  • Attach the grass layer to the fence layer using double stick tape.
  • Apply double stick tape on both ends of the back of the grass/fence layer and attach to the card base.
  • Cut four grass layers 3.75″ x 1.50″ and score at .50″ on each end.  Fold left side forward and the right side backwards.
  • Apply double stick tape to the folded tab ends of the grass inserts and attach them inside the box.

 

I love the spring look of this z fold window card with the brightly colored paper, flowers and awnings. Click thru to see the step by step instructions.

The Flower Pots and Garden Flowers

  • Use yellow cardstock to cut the terracotta pots and apply Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge ink using mini applicators.  Note:  The yellow cardstock shows through the ink and allows the lighter highlights of the pot to show to help create the terracotta appearance.
  • Cut the flowers using light and bright pink cardstock and the greenery using green cardstock.
  • Use snips to cut the branches off the leaf group foliage and attach them to the back of the flower pots using glossy accents.
  • Form the tiny flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the flowers to the flower pot foliage using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the pots in behind the fence sections and attach using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Create several additional branches with flowers and tuck them in behind the grass layers using glossy accents.

The Cats and Chair

  • Cut the cats using white cardstock.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the body of the cats using a mini applicator.
  • Use Vintage Photo ink and a mini applicator to add darker shading on the cats. 
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the cats and attach them to the grass/fence layer and card base.
  • Finish the card by attaching one beach chair to a grass inside the fence using glossy accents.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my z fold window card. Here is a Pinterest link to more z fold window card inspiration.  Check out my Z Fold Category if you would like to see my cards with all different themes.  I think there are 15 in that category now.  Can you tell how much I love making them!  You will be seeing more coming over the next couple of months as I am working to create new cards for Rubbernecker to show off in their display at the Scrapbook Expo shows.  If you are attending a show this year be sure and visit the Rubbernecker booth.  Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have a great Sunday.

A Cute Welcome Spring Card!

Today I am sharing a super cute Welcome Spring card using a bunch of fun dies from Rubbernecker. It may seem a little early for a Welcome Spring card – I know some areas are still getting tons of snow and chilly weather – but the good thing is Spring always does arrive and this card can get your friend ready for the blooming season.

For this card I used the Wheelbarrow, Tall Terracotta Pots, Grass, Watering Can, Tall Buckets, Small Flowers #1, Tiny Flower Buds, Leaf Group, Small Ivy, Small ButterfliesGrass #2  and Rectangle Combo #4.

It's never to early to send a Welcome Spring card - click through to see how fun this is to make!

The Frame and Grass

  • Cut an A2 sized card base using white cardstock.
  • Use blue cardstock to cut the frame sections and green cardstock to cut the grass layers.
  • Attach the two frame layers together using double stick tape.
  • Cut the grass layer to fit in the frame and attach it to the double stick tape.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.

The Wheelbarrow, Bucket, Watering Can and Flower Pots

  • Cut the wheelbarrow and bucket using gray cardstock and the flower pots using yellow cardstock.
  • Apply Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge ink to the wheelbarrow and bucket using mini applicators to distress and age.
  • Use Vintage Photo ink on the wheelbarrow handles.
  • Apply Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge ink to the flower pots using mini applicators.
  • Cut a watering can using aqua cardstock.

A Welcome Spring card can never be sent too early - click through to see the details!

The Flower Pot Arrangements

  • Cut the flowers using pink, purple and yellow cardstock.
  • Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the foliage.
  • Cut the Leaf Group foliage sections apart and attach them to the back of the flower pots using glossy accents.
  • Attach the flowers to the foliage in the flower pots using glossy accents.
  • Use glossy accents to attach pre made white Nuvo Crystal drops to the center to the pink flowers.  Note:  I keep a supply of Nuvo Crystal Drops on a piece of craft sheet to have on hand for when I need them for flower centers, etc.  Using pre made drops are so much cheaper than buying tiny white pearls. 

Assemble the Scene

  • Use glossy accents to attach the two buckets to the back of the wheelbarrow.
  • Tuck the wheelbarrow in behind the grass layer and attach it to the card base using a piece of mounting tape.
  • Apply mounting tape to the bucket, watering can and third flower pot, tuck them in behind the grass and attach to the card base.
  • Cut Grass #2 using green cardstock and tuck them in behind the grass section and attach using glossy accents.
  • Finish the scene by cutting small butterflies using aqua cardstock and attach them to the card base using glossy accents.

Even if the throes of winter a Welcome Spring card can be a special treat - come see how to make this!

Think of those people who could use a breath of SPRING air and get them ready by sending this Welcome Spring card – you might even pop a little packet of flower seeds in there to get them excited!  You can see more spring flower card inspiration on this Pinterest link. I sure do appreciate you coming by and I hope you are having a good week.

It is so much fun to make a welcome spring card with flowers.

Bicycle Silhouette

Making this bicycle silhouette scene card was lots of fun and I love how it turned out.  Sadly, I had a hard time getting good pictures to show off how beautiful the Carta Bella Home Again designer paper is.  Originally, I made the scene with all white images and it was impossible to photograph.  I hate it when that happens.  So I decided to tuck in some green foliage and purple flowers to the basket and grass line and exchanged the white butterflies with purple butterflies.  In the end I really liked it better with the changes. For this project I used the Rubbernecker Bicycle, Deckle Frame, Small Ivy, Tiny Flower Buds, Small Butterflies and Best Friends sentiment set.

Click thru to check out how I made this white bicycle silhouette scene card with a pretty designer paper background and paper flowers.

The Card Base and Deckle Frame

  • Cut an A2 sized card base and a 5.50″ x 4.25″ piece of designer paper.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the back of the designer and attach it to the card base.
  • Cut the deckle frame using white cardstock and stamp the sentiment using Nocturne ink. 
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back and attach it to the card base.

The Bicycle and Basket of Flowers

  • Cut the bicycle and basket using white cardstock.
  • Attach the bicycle sections together using glossy accents and attach it to the card base using pieces of mounting tape..
  • Cut the small ivy using green and white cardstock.
  • Attach the ivy sections to the back of the basket using glossy accents.
  • Use white and purple cardstock to cut the tiny flowers.
  • Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the flowers to the ivy using glossy accents.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the basket and attach it to the card base.

The Ivy Flower Border and Butterflies

  • Tuck the ivy sections in behind the deckle frame and attach to the card base using glossy accents.
  • Attach the tiny flowers to the ivy border using glossy accents.
  • Cut the butterflies using purple cardstock .
  • Attach pre made white Nuvo Crystal Drops to the butterflies using glossy accents.
