Sending Heartfelt Thoughts - Shutter Card

Connie Stewart is a well-known, talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  I was inspired to create this card after watching her video HERE.  Please take the time to leave a comment on her video, she is so kind to share what she loves so freely.

I completely changed up the look of the card, thus changing many of the dimensions.  I LOVE layers! Follow Connie's video for the mechanism only. I highly suggest you use scrap cardstock and make this card up before using your precious Stampin' Up! cardstock.

Hi Beth, this is a beautiful card and love the colours. Thanks for sharing this with all the details. So appreciated. You certainly seem to be a person who likes a challenge and create new things with your own personal touch. I was wondering if you have ever made the "impossible card" design. I saw one at a shop I was recently at but no clue how it was made so thought the best person to ask is you. Thanks and take care. Sheila
