Gatefold Shutter Cards

We had such fun on our camping trip to Montana!  We met up with our friends in Anaconda and hiked, golfed, fished, took a couple of historic tours, and visited the Arts in the Park festival twice.  :  )   M. and I did a lot of catching up on what was happening in our families, talked scrapbooking, cardmaking and the Explore, looked at Pinterest and watched crafting videos together.  Lovely!

We were fascinated with the idea of the Gatefold Shutter card, sometimes called the Magic Eye card, and after several videos we figured it out.   I was able to put the deets into Design Space and cut a thank you card for my DS and DD who fed cats and chickens while we were gone.  (I'll share these when they are delivered!)

Tomorrow is my eldest DD's wedding anniversary and I used my file once I got home - and got the laundry underway - to make a card for L and D.   Here it is closed with the belly band:-

and as the card opens, the shutter mechanism starts to open:-

to reveal the hidden message or image.   How cool is that?

The decorative paper comes from Hobby Lobby.   Yes!   I finally got to visit a Hobby Lobby in Spokane Valley and I was in heaven!   All I can say is that it is well worth the drive. Truly!

A last peek at the card in the late afternoon sun.

Ughh!  Now I see that I bent the corner a little, so pretty please ignore that bit!  Thanks for visiting with me today. : ) Christine

Here's the file if you'd like to make your own card.

Go here for excellent instructions.   Enjoy!

If Music be the Food of Love...

... play on.   My DD and DSIL are very active in the theatre and both love the Bard.  So when I saw the piano card - in - a - box from Mary at SVGCuts, I knew I had to make it for their Wedding Anniversary this week.

The candelabra and bouquet cuts come from Divine Wedding and 'Happy Anniversary' comes from the Phrases cart.  The hardest part of the card was layering the flowers!

Mary always adds an optional cut to write a personal message and I added this to the back of the card.
I wanted to add "You two make beautiful music together." but DH thought it too corny!

Thanks for visiting with me today!  : ) Christine
