Fancy Fold Blog Hop

Hello everyone,
Time for another Fancy Fold Blog Hop !! are you ready?? This month we are trying out the Shutter Card.  And guess what? in all my many years of stamping and card making I have never tried one of these before. They are easy and offers a fun surprise for the recipient as they open it. Here's my example using one of my favourite stamp sets An Open Heart .

My colours are soft and mostly from the subtle collection and truth be told I have to force myself to use them but I do love the spring feel of this card. I used Blushing Bride, Soft Sky, Pear Pizzaz and a bit of bright Daffodil Delight. 

Here's a closer look of the belly band...
I stamped everything in Basic Grey Archival ink coloured it using reinkers and a blender pen then went over with the Project Life pen to add some black highlights to the birdie. The bird punch to add a few green leaves and the itty bitty punch pack for the flowers  
And the photo is not doing justice to the middle of the flowers I used the gold Wink of Stella to add some glitz to them :)
Here's what to looks on the inside :) , the dotty paper is from the Designer Paper Stack in Neutrals. 

I hope you loved my example and I hope you will try your hand at making one, if you do please post me a link so I can come and visit you :) Now let's hop over to my sweet friend Tanja. :)
