Shutter cards

These are 'shutter cards' I made using a new tool I recently purchased, the Scor-Pal. You can view this item at
I became interested in this tool when I saw items created by my friend, Bonnie, on her blog
I encourage you to check Bonnie's blog for some fantastic 'eye candy'.

You can view instructions to make these shutter cards on either the scor-pal website or on Bonnie's blog. The instructions on the scor-pal website involve using a 5 1/2 x 12" piece of cardstock. If you check out Bonnie's blog she provides pictures and instructions on how to create 2 other versions of this shutter card.

One of the versions Bonnie shows is called the 'full front' version and uses cardstock that is 5 1/2 x 11". You can see that version to the left and below.

Bonnie's blog also shows another version that uses cardstock that is 5 1/2 x 11" and creates a 'half front' shutter card like the one shown below.

The Scor-Pal was so easy to use to create these cards. The hard part for me was deciding how to embellish the cards once I had attached the decorative cardstock.

I think these cards turned out great and I'd like to thank Bonnie for turning me on to the new tool and the card design.

Good Golly! What an assortment of cards! And you are right...the card base takes about 10 minutes to make and decorating could take literally hours lol!
