Teacher Gatefold Shutter Card

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I have another Teacher thank you card I created for my grandchildren to give to their teachers at the end of the year.

Taylored Expressions recently released a couple of items which I knew I needed to add to my stash. I am always looking for stamps/dies that would be suitable to make teacher cards and this pencil stamp called Create in Color Background is one I will think I will use a lot.

I also make a few Gatefold cards, so the Better Half Cutting Plates were a perfect addition for these types of cards.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

I die cut the one of the dies from the Better Half  Cutting Plate die set four times from white cardstock and once each from red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple cardstock. I then adhered each of the white panels onto white cardstock that had double sided adhesive tape on the front and paper pieced all the colored stripes into the white frames in rainbow order. I have plenty left to make more cards in the future.

I stamped the pencil background onto white cardstock and then die cut this using a circle die and layered that on the centre of the card. I added sentiments from Heffy Doodle Stamps Teach Me Clear Stamp set and die cut using Honey Bee Stamps Banner Builders die set.

Here is my card when it is partially opened.

For the inside of the card I added two more of the rainbow panels I used for the front of the card.

I created a Gatefold Shutter Card using MFT Stamps Shutter Card Components die set.

I stamped the pencil background again on white cardstock and added that to the centre panel at the bottom of the card. I used Heffy Doodle Stamps Teacher die and Teach Me Clear stamp set for the sentiments.

On both of the side panels I added two kids which are from Stamping Bella's Squidgy Pals stamp set.
