Shutter Card Picture Perfect Birthday made my way after watching others on YouTube. I love taking pictures and loved the idea of a shutter card!

Shutter Card Picture Perfect Birthday

After seeing so many others make this card I had to give it a try.  I struggled with the “shutter” pieces!  Hopefully my instructions and video will help you not waste paper like I did!

Shutter Card Picture Perfect Birthday Instructions

Adhere the 2 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ DSP to the 3″ x 5 1/2″ Bermuda Bay layer with Snail at the top and the bottom

Punch a circle out of middle with 2 1/4″ circle punch 

Add Dimensionals to the back of this layer at the top and the bottom, remove the backing on the bottom dimensionals only

Place this layer in the center of card

Score both pieces of Bermuda Bay 3 1/2″ x 4″ pieces at 1/2″ on the 3 1/2″ side

Use a pencil to mark at 2″ on the 4″ side

Turn the paper around and mark at 1 3/4′, cut up this mark to the 2″ mark, then snip from each corner to form a banner tail

Use this one as a template and cut the second piece of 3 1/2″ x 4″ so you now have two

Insert the shutter pieces underneath the DSP/Cardstock layer

Use Tear and Tape of Snail adhesive to adhere the pieces as I showed in the video

Punch a 2 1/4″ circle out of Whisper White CS

Stamp sentiment on circle

Apply a lot of Snail at the top of the circle and a little at the bottom

Use a Paper Piercer or your Snips to slide the circle underneath the shutter pieces, opening up the card to align it

Remove backing from top Dimensionals

Add the belly band to the card

Stamp Sentiment on Whisper White 1 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ layer and add this to the belly band!
