Hi Friends! Kelly Fusco here & today I have a special project to share featuring the Spellbinders Daisy Delight Garden Shutters Card.
To start off I die cut 3 A2 panels from 2 toned cardstock.
Then I took the kinetic die and lined it up as the instructions show.
Once that was die cut I moved that same die DOWN onto the SAME panel so that the TOP DIE holes lined up with the bottom die cut holes.
I taped it down and die cut that.
Then I had to fold that piece on a Mountain and Valley fold.
Once I had that folded properly the next step was to take my 2nd A2 panel and glue the kinetic piece (the one we just die cut) and ONLY GLUE DOWN THE 4 TABS.
Let the glue dry. Once dry you can pull the top piece (kinetic piece) up or down (depending on how you want the shutters to open)
Heres a side view so you can see what it looks like.
The next step was to take the small square die and the last remaining panel and center it precisely in the middle. TIP- you can take the original A2 die and place it on your panel and use the notches to line up the center die. This creates the opening for the shutters and is the outer top layer.
Once that is lined up I die cut it.
Then you will have a panel with an opening. This seemed a bit plain to me so I used an Sizzix Brickwork Embossing Folder to give it some dimension & texture.
Glue that panel onto your piece but be mindful of where the glue goes. Once you make it once you will understand and it will all make sense.
Then I went ahead and die cut all the flowers and lattice dies in Onyx Stardream cardstock (shimmery) and I added some color with copics to the flowers. Y19, YG25, E35.
I glued my flowers together and stacked them for more dimension.
Then I added some Star Dust Stickles to the lattice openings & on the flowers.
I then decided to add the entire thing onto a 130lb cardbase so i can write my message inside.
And thats it. I hope you like it.
There is more info/instructions on a PDF file on the Spellbinders website if needed.
I also curved the Daisy petals but I had them flat for the picture & for mailing.
