Shutter Card Tutorial

Hello Lovelies,

I hope you are having a great day?

I have finally completed a tutorial to share with you on how to create a Shutter Card.

This is a fun and interactive card that always puts a smile on the crocodile!

When closed, the Belly Band decorates the cover. It slides off and then the magic happens!

Here are the measurements to make this card.


PART A – Base Cardstock (Very Vanilla)

1. 12”x6”, Score at 3” & 9”

2. 9”x4” – Score ½” at each end along the long side.

3. 3 ¾”x3 ¾”

4. 6”x4”

5. 2 ½”x5 ½”

PART B -Contrast Cardstock (Pink)

1. 5 ¾”x5 ¾” (glue to the inside of the card in the middle square)

2. 5 ¾”x2 ¾” (x2) (glue to the inside flaps on either side)

3. 6 7/8”x3 7/8” (Glue this to 8”x4” Vanilla & cut square out of the middle)

PART C – Patterned Paper

1. 5 1/5”x2 ¾” (x2) (glue onto outside flaps

2. 5 ¾”x3 ¾” (glue to 4”x6” vanilla & cut out circle in the centre


2”X 11 3/4 – Score 2 3/8, 2 ¼, 8 4/8, & 8 5/8 “. I also score a second time very close to the first score lines to allow the belly band to fold around the bulky card easily.


1. The largest Circle Die – 3” – (Layering Circles Framelits)

2. The 5th biggest 3” Square Die (Squares Collection)

I have also created a video explaining in detail how to put it all together.

I hope you find this useful and enjoy creating your own Shutter Card!

I'd love to see what you make, don't be shy, send me a picture!

Take care,

loves & hugs
