Today I am sharing with you a great masculine birthday shutter card featuring the shutter fold. If you were here yesterday, you saw this same fun fold created with a bit of summer in mind. But for my next attempt, I wanted to use the World of Good designer paper in all the neutrals. Cinnamon Cider, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, and the shine of foil brass. Twelve stunning designs with an antique, old-world feel. Perfect for all your masculine cards. I really wanted this paper to take center stage so I used only matching or neutral cardstock with them.
For this card, you will need a standard A2 card base. For mine, I chose Basic Black. Your next layer is the pop-up shutter base and will require all the cutting and folding. It measures 8-1/4 x 5-1/4. Start by scoring it on the long side at 2-1/16, 4-1/8, and 6-1/4. It is very easy to see these marks with the Stampin’ Trimmer. Now turn to the short side and mark a pencil line pencil 1 inch in and 2 inches from each side. Do this on the other end as w

ell. Score these pencil lines. Using your scissors, cut down the card’s length from one score line to another at each 2-inch mark. Carefully fold the card on all score lines to form a W.
Bit Of Vintage
At this step, you can start to create your card. You can use regular card stock, stamps, embossing folders, or, like I did, designer paper to finish the card. I thought the stamp set Whiskey Business went perfectly with the paper I selected for my card. I love the look of the bottle, thick glass with a bit of design. Would you say vintage looking? Bring in the blends for a bit of coloring and add in the Shimmery Crystal Effects on the bottle and glass for a subtle gleam. I used the Balmy Blue blend to highlight slightly on the bottle and glass for a bit of shadowing. The birthday expression is from the stamp set Many Mates. I thought the font was perfect for a masculine birthday card.
So I hope you take these instructions and create your shutter card. Once you make that first cut, it is all easy sailing from there. Just a few supplies needed! Cardstock, paper trimmer, and your imagination!
