Lawn Fawn Shutter Card – Life is Good

Hello and Welcome!

In todays card and video we will be creating this amazingly fun Shutter Card!!! I have had this die set in my stash for a little while now and I finally got a chance to pull it out and use it to create this special card! Literally all of the hard work has been done for you with the way the dies are created. The set includes the die that cuts the card base and the shutter card mechanism dies, as well as the belly band dies…love that!!!

We will keep the front of the card fairly simple with our lovely lighthouse….but when you open the card you will get this explosion of color in our tropical scene! And when the shutter opens up you will see this beautiful tropical island!

I’ll show you much of the coloring using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and also some ink blending to create the woodgrain texture as well as the sky and ocean.

This card was inspired by the current Lawn Fawn Blog Challenge #101 – travel destination/favorite place – which is linked to below.
