Seasons Spring Shutter Card

     This is the second card in my Graphic 45 Seasons card collection. This one is a shutter card. I think this is one of the easiest fancy folds to decorate. After matting all of the surfaces, it takes little else to make it look finished.
     I used some ephemera for the sentiment "bless this nest". I added some butterflies punch from a retired Martha Stewart punch.
     The center panel contains a "Spring" tag, a metal key, a chipboard embellishment, ivory organza ribbon, and more butterflies. I made a second card and matted the tag on brown, which was a big improvement.

     I die cut this tag from a Spellbinders die, matted it and added an organza ribbon bow. This is a good place to sign the card. Inspired by: Gloria Stengel.

     I will be making 16 cards and 4 calendars with this Graphic 45 Seasons Paper. All of these SEASON cards can be made using:

  • one sheet of each of the patterned paper 
  • one sheet of each of  Prints and Solids
In order to make All Seasons cards and calendars, you only need purchase the following items once:
  • Tags and Pockets
  • Chip Board
  • Ephemera
  • Stickers
Stay tuned for more cards this year.
