Introducing Amazing Paper Grace Garden Shutters Collection
Don’t you love interactive cards? Amazing Paper Grace has added the Garden Shutters Collectionfor another fun element of motion. It creates a beautiful card and with one pull of a tab, the shutters open to reveal a delightful surprise sentiment on the other side! There are two card base sizes, A2 and 5 x 7-inch, to choose from. Each card base set has all the elements you need to assemble and embellish a card! Which catches your eye?
Today's projects were created with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.
To create my card I followed the instruction on the
Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7" Card Base die package and cut a card 5x7'' then I used the Kinetic Layer Mechanism as per instructions. Once I had the mechanism die cut I placed over the Scallop Rim (an outline die) from Spellbinders S6-184 - Eyelet Lace Frame and die cut it over the base with the shutter card mechanism.
Once I had a shaped mechanism I die cut the frame also using the same, the Scallop Rim, die and put the card together as per instruction. For dimension I also added one more frame on 3D tape over the top of the card.
I decorated the card with lots of butterflies. Some of them I placed on 3D tape (one or more layers of 3D tape together) and some straight on the base. I also placed some of them the way so they overflowing the base. Before adhering them I double checked that they do not disturb the card flipping mechanism.
I slightly bended up with my fingers the butterflies wings for dimension.
