Shuttered 25th Anniversary

It's been a while since I made a shutter card, so had to look for a tutorial, isn't it great there are so many lovely people out there willing to share there talent with us.

Card is 2 x 12 inches, I've glued half sheet 12 x 12 scrapbook paper onto a piece plain white cardstock before cutting and folding. I made my scallopie type edge by cutting two large nestie rectangles and then trimming them lengthwise. As you can see I've gone mad with the stickers again, and 'framed' everywhere with them.

 My flowers are from sheet of self adhesive stickers - have to admit I thought I was sending for a sheet of multisized decoupage lol. Turned out happy accident though. I trimmed off the pale green backgrounds and stuck them to my mat and layered nestie shapes. Made a lift up flap to hide my sentiment, and added sticker greetings and little embellishments about to finish off. I've tiny clear (silver) gems on my big corner stickers and centre of rosette.

My first go at a rosette. I like the finished effect by boy was it fiddly....and had to leave it to dry overnight as couldn't be bother to get glue gun out for just one thing....mistake.

So many lovely details here, Lin! I love your medallion and choice of colors. You can't go wrong with a trifold shutter when you want to give someone that extra wow factor!
