Holiday Card Series w/ Lawn Fawn - Winter Wonderland Shutter Card

mardi 15 septembre 2020

 Hello there,

I'm excited to be back with a shutter card, showcasing some lovely squirrels celebrating Christmas. Those cuties are from Let's go nuts, a brand new stamp set. Originally they're supposed to go with a fall theme but I thought it would be fun to take them to a winter wonderland.

I started by stamping the images using Jet black ink, and I colored everything using alcohol markers.

When the coloring was done, I created a house for my little characters using another new product: the Acorn House die set. I die cut all the pieces and added distress inks to make them less flat.

Before assembling the house, I glued small pieces of vellum at the back of the door and window and then I finally attached everything to build a acorn house.

Next I moved on to the shutter card. I started by cutting a card base, two shutters and one center piece out of strathmore bristol cardstock. And to create a winter landscape on the card base, I used a hill stencil. I placed it right below the marks that the die creates, and used spun sugar to create a cute pink base for my sky. Next I added worn lipstick distress ink from the top towards the bottom and blended the colors together.

For the bottom of my card, I wanted to create snow so I placed the same stencil over the pink sky and used hickory smoke to create some snowy hills. And I applied the ink with a light hand to keep the whole background very light.

Next I put the center piece in the middle of my shutter panel and placed the stencil on top, trying to match with the other hills. And I used spun sugar and worn lipstick distress inks again to create a coordinated sky on that center piece. And I did the snowy hills as well using the same stencil along with hickory smoke distress ink.

I also needed the shutters to match with the other pieces, so I used the same inks again on those elements.

Next I added lots of texture, starting with some water drops all over the panel. I dried the water using a paper towel, and next I smooshed my worn lipstick ink pad onto my glass surface, I added water to the ink and splattered drops on my paper on the sky section.

For the snowy hills, I mixed some hickory smoke distress ink with water and splattered drops as well on the bottom of my shutter panel.

And the last step: I made my panel super sparkly using liquid stardust.

Next I assembled the shutter card and I started by folding the sides and tabs in. I took the shutters, folded the tabs as well, and attached those two elements inside the card base. And next I attached the center piece as well.

I also created another panel for the front of my card. This panel was cut using the largest die from the Large Stitched 4 Bar Rectangle die set, and I used the same inks and created the same textures as before on that panel.

Next I finally attached the images using a combination of liquid glue, glue dots and foam squares. I added some shine to the lights using glossy accents, and stamped my sentiment "Merry Xmas".

I applied super sticky tape on the outside left flap of the shutter panel and stuck my front panel to that flap. And I still had two white sections that I needed to cover to make the card prettier, and to close the card easily I starting by attaching a piece of twine on the right flap using a small piece of tape.

I applied the same tape on that white section, and used a paper from the new Let it shine paper pack to cover that section. I trimmed off the paper and next I did the same thing on the other white section using the same twine and paper. Finally I got messy and added chunky glitter on some parts of the scene.

  1. This is so cute! Just had to find your blog and leave a comment!

  2. Yet another amazing card. I’m loving your Blogg as I’m never going to miss out on any of your cards and better still I’ve got all your archived cards to sit back read and watch your videos. Hope you don’t mind me commenting on your makes. I just need to tell you how awesome and unique each card is. Thanks again for sharing such a beautiful card, I think I’m liking the shutter die as my favourite from all the other interactive cards Lawn Fawn seem to have out at the moment. I’d love to buy them all but I only allow myself so much a month for crafting goodies and at the moment I’m wanting too many stamp sets. My favourite in my basket at the moment is Ready Yeti or Not? It’s an older stamp set I think, but it’s just so cute. I’m hoping to find a card you’ve already made using Yetti - if not and you have the stamp set, could you make a card example please xx cheers Nessa xx thanks as always xx
