Birthday is on Point

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing a Gatefold Shutter Card with you, it's been almost a year since I created one of this style of card.

MFT Stamps recently released a Shutter Card Components Die-namics set and even though I already had two die sets from Nellie Snellen, I had to add it to my stash. This one is a little different to the ones I already have. For a start it only has two dies, and the opening that reveals the hidden image or message is slightly bigger. This means that you have more options on what stamps to use for this card. This die set is also easy to adapt to use either with US cardstock which uses imperial measurements or Aussie cardstock which is metric and slightly different sizes.

To decorate my card I used a stamp set I received from a friend for my birthday which is from Darcie's Heart & Home. For this card I added a birthday sentiment that is revealed when the card is opened.

Gatefold Cards can be hard to keep closed, so for this card I decided to add my image to a belly band. I also added a few Nuvo Drops on either side of the belly band.

Here you can see when the card is partially open and the image in the top centre circle is only partly seen.
