Caly’s Adorable Shutter Card Inspired by the Card Sketch

Hi there, Caly here today. I’m excited to share today’s project with you for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge-87! We’ve got a card sketch and I hope it’s loaded with inspiration for you! There’s still a lot of time to create and join the fun if you haven’t started.

When I saw this sketch, I thought it looked like the inside of a Shutter Card – I think many of you will agree! I wanted the focus to be something different so instead of using a heart element or the circle, I tweaked and played to create an oven using the Magic Picture Changer Oven Add-On.

I started with a piece of cardstock that is large enough to cut out the shutter card base (6” x 8”). Before die-cutting, I stenciled it with the Brick Stencil and Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Ink to prevent harsh ink marks from the score lines. After die-cutting, I burnished the lines and cut out a center panel to ink-blend with the same stencil except I faded to white. To create my window, I used the square die from the Magic Picture Changer Oven Add-On to trace the inner square so I could use a ruler and kraft knife to cut my window. The die cuts the frame for the oven door, which I die-cut in Narwhal cardstock along with the burner and pan. I added some Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks to these to give them a bit of shading too.

I then cut a square using my trimmer slightly bigger than the oven door that I ink-blended with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink. Then I die-cut my shutter panels using vellum. I also reserved a piece of vellum 1 ½” x 8” for a belly band. I adhere nothing together yet because I need to add my image behind the window panel first.

Now to the coloring! I stamped my images from A Creature Was Stirring and colored them with Copic markers.
Gingerbread: E30, E33
Bread: YR30, Y23, YR24
Mice: R20, W1, W3, W5
Oven Tray and Background: C0, C1, C3, C5
Reds: R32, R35, R27
Yellows: Y02, Y08
Greens: G14, G17
Teals: BG11, BG34
Purples: BV000, BV01, BV04

Once the images are die-cut, I can start building my scene! The background panel for the oven is a piece of cardstock that I colored with Gray Copic markers. Then I added the pan, bread and steam before attaching that to the card panel behind the window. I adhered the center panel to the tabs at this point and built the rest of my scene. To finish, I attached my sentiment that I embossed in white over black cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed this project!! I’m so glad you’ve stopped by – thank you! The Card Sketch challenge ends on November 1st at 11:59pm PT! I hope you’ll join the fun!
Have a wonderful day!

Let’s see how the sketch inspired our amazing Design Team!

Christy featured a sweet little A Creature Was Stirring scene! She created the look of the 3 panels with a fish-tail banner and a mix of Let It Shine and Snow Day Remix papers!

Karin used Lacy Heart Stackables to create the focal point of her sketch design! She used a scoring board and a bone folder to create the dry-embossed stripe background that she layered on a Fancy Scalloped Rectangle. For the sweet winter scene she combined Winter Skies, and Snow Day with a greeting from Tiny Tag Sayings!

Caly‘s beautiful design features Snow Globe Scenes and Tiny Gingerbread! I love how she coordinated the ink color she used for the Snowflake Trio Stencil with the pretty bokeh pattern of the Snow Day Remix 6×6 paper!

Samantha‘s I Love You(calyptus) design is so clever! She created a tree for the cute koala with Woodgrain Backdrops stamped on a tall panel. She added leaves for the critter to munch on from A Bug Deal and Hey Lady; they are arranged to give the suggestion of the heart!

I like that Franci used the sketch to make this wide landscape oriented scene! It’s a cozy Fall for the Den Sweet Den bears! She used a mix of Into the Woods Remix and Hello Sunshine Remix 6×6 papers to create the sketch design!

It’s always so fun when our classic sets come out to play! Samantha used the 3 panels of the sketch to create an awesome inky backdrop for the Happy Haunting house and ghosts!

Joyce used a gold foil Let It Shine paper and a panel of green cardstock to create the sketch background. The Fancy Folded Banner adds some dimension to the sentiment in the sketch; and the Ho-Ho-Holidays Santa and Mrs. Claus look so cute on the Lacy Heart die cut from Gold Metallic cardstock!

Jessica got a little creative with the sketch by making a Shutter Card! She saw the three panels inside the card and the heart on the band on the outside as the focal image!

Jenn turned the heart into a Outside In Stitched Scalloped Square and filled it with a sweet Den Sweet Den and Christmas Dreams scene! The large Winter Big Scripty Words greeting becomes the sentiment banner!

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 86 tomorrow!
