Christmas Shutter Card

I made my first Shutter Card last month, you can see it HERE.  It includes a little video clip of how it opens.

For this shutter card I used Christmas papers from The Works.  They were all snippets from the 12 x 12 paper pad, so I'll be sharing my card over in The Playground.

This is the inside of the card.

As part of the 'Creative Minds ii Kind Kinds' Facebook group I was asked to make a video for our 5th Anniversary celebration event yesterday.   Now, I've never made a video before and it was totally out of my comfort zone, but I thought I'd give it a go and demonstrate how to make this card.  It was strange sat in my dining room on my own, talking to myself!  I recorded it in several short clips and a friend 'stitched' them all together.  You can see my finished video by clicking on the link below.


I am joining in the following challenges:


  1. Another lovely creative fold card Liz...
