1 Minute to WOW! Video – Shutter Card Technique

Create this Shutter Technique Card using Forever Love Designer Series Paper and Gold Foil from Stampin' Up! Card Design by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

This sweet floral pattern from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Love Designer Series Paper (DSP) collection gets chic “styling” from the shutter card technique.  The best news of all is that it’s simple to recreate using 1/4” strips of gold foil.  It gives the illusion of DSP pieces but the strips are actually layered on top of a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Forever Love DSP.  Watch my 1 Minute to WOW! Video for a quick demonstration on the Shutter Card Technique.
