Crealies New Release Inspiration Day 1 - Gatefold Shutter Card

Hello Everyone,

I'm stopping by to share this fun Gatefold Shutter card using Crealies new products. These Shutter dies are so fun and it make 4 by 4 inches gatefold note card. I made this fun card for my cute Catie (my younger daughter ;)) who is a big fan of interactive cards. 

Over to my card...

To make this card, I first made the base structure using Crealies White stamping card stock. Please check Mandy's video here at Crealies Youtube channel. She has explained it so beautifully.

Here is the close up of front Panel where I stenciled the die cut out layers on white card stock (which is the part of shutter dies) with Distress Oxides using Crealies Circle stencils.

Similarly, I stenciled the inside die cut out panel and layered it. I ink blended the inside of card side panels using same distress Oxide colors. 

Once satisfied with ink blending, I added the flaps as shown in the video and  marked the area for my space for the pic and glued it. Then I added die cut out panel with circle which I stamped and ink blended using foam tape to complete the mechanism.

To close this gatefold card, I created this slider mechanism using Cat Partzz dies. Here is small video to see how this gatefold shutter card works.

I hope you get inspired.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!

  1. This is such a clever idea, have never seen a card that opens like this where you remove a piece. I bet your daughter loved this, especially the cute little cat. The colours are gorgeous and really like how you stamped the sentiment off to the side and repeated. Its a brilliant card and I'm always so excited to see you at TIME OUT!

  2. This is so adorable Deepti... Love the interactive element.
