Here is a beautiful baby shower card I made yesterday using a variety of dies from Heartelt Creations, Marianne Creatables, Tattered Lace, Cheery Lynn, Spellbinders rolled mini rosess, Memory Box butterflies, a Martha Stewart border punch, and a Doohickey rose leaf die!
I started out by using the Tattered Lace shutter card die. If you don’t have one of these, you are missing out! It makes creating a shutter card a breeze! No more measuring, slicing, bone folder-ing (is that a word?) It’s all done for you in a fast pass through a die cut machine. I use the Spellbinder Grand Calibur!
Supplies: 12 x 12 piece of cardstock, colored paper, (I used two shades of pink) patterned paper, vellum, heart shaped bling, memento ink (two shades of pink), adhesive, ribbon, heart shaped bling,
Directions: Cut a shutter card, using the Tattered Lace Shutter Die, cut coordinating paper using the matching dies. Using the lightest pink paper, cut the Heartfelt Creations “Regal Borders” die cut a two using the top cutting edge, but not the bottom cutting edge, layer them behind the dark pink shape for the end panels. Cut a long strip of paper and border punch using the eyelet punch, glue it on. Glue on your next layer of printed or embossed paper. I embossed mine with a Swiss dot embossing folder from Spellbinders. Put a piece of pink ribbon over the place where the two papers (border punch and embossed piece) meet. Adhere to both end panels of the card. Cut four butterflies–two vellum and two whit cardstock adhere on the pink squares and put in place. Cut one vellum French Doily from Cheery Lynn, and a baby carriage from Marianne Creatables, ink up the baby carriage before removing it from the die. Glue together and attach to the front panel. Middle section: layer various paper using the Tattered Lace dies. Cut the word “Baby” and the safety pin from Mariana Creatables. Make a tag using the “fish banner” from Cheery Lynn. Adhere the pieces in place. Using Spellbinders mini rolled roses, make three roses and roll and glue. Cut 2 DoHickey rose leaves from white cardstock and 3 wreath leaves from white cardstock and three leaves in vellum from Cheery Lynn dies. Glue the flowers in a pleasing design on the end panel. On the back side of the card, cut a panel of coordinating plain paper to write your message. Done! Bliss! Enjoy!
The patterned paper for the middle section was made with ink and an embossing folder. It’s called letter press technique.
