VIDEO: How to make a shutter card with Capture the Good


I’m pretty excited to share this shutter card video with you. It’s not only a cool interactive card technique, but it includes the Capture the Good stamp set that I helped design with Stampin Up!  I love this set, it’s my favorite (I know I may be slightly biased). I love photography. The front of this card says “Snap Click Say Cheese” with a photobombing koala. And when you open it, there is a camera with a shutter that opens to reveal another koala! Super fun! I was also thinking how cool this idea would be for a party invitation. When you open it, the camera reveals a photo.

I combined the Stampin Up Birthday Bonanza Suite with the Capture the Good stamp set for this party card. The Bonanza Buddies stamp set and dies, combined with the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper, pompoms and matching Daffodil Ruched Ribbon.

I will share how I made this card on the video below. There is an accompanying free PDF below as well that includes all of the measurements and scoring information. My inspiration for this card came from a shutter card that Donna Hepburn created (photo below) using the camera stamp. She sent me one and I was so inspired, I’ve been dying to make one.

This is the original card created by Donna Hepburn. It also shows the versatility of this design. She used it for Christmas Cards. She used the Stitched Star Dies on it.

I shared this card on the video as well. It is another fun way to use the camera image. The meerkats are from the Gang’s All Meer Stamp Set that is available during Sale-a-bration. You can get more info on this card here.
