Faux Shutter With Designer Paper

Today I’m sharing a cool layout for a greeting card. It’s called Faux Shutter, Iris Fold, or Quilt. It’s an excellent way to pierce the paper and make a beautiful centerpiece. I used different designer papers for this project, but I especially liked the Pretty Prints I used. The colors look great together! I have more ideas and a video to share too.

Replay Of The Live Broadcast of The Faux Shutter With Designer Paper

The video was recorded live during my weekly Create On the Fly. I share how I created the Faux Shutter. 

Faux Shutter With Pretty Prints

This is my favorite of all the Faux Shutter cards I created. As mentioned, the more color variation, the better the shutter style. 


  • Very Vanilla card base 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 score at 4-1/4, 1-½ x 1-½ for the center greeting
  • Blackberry Bliss square layer 3-½ x 3-½
  • Calypso Coral top square 3-¼ x 3-¼ die cut or punch our 2-½ circle in the center. A great tip in the video is to find the center.
  • Pretty Prints; 4 of 3 x ½, different prints 4 of 3 x ½, and another print 4 of 3 x 1; this is for the Shutter portion.
    For the front of the card, 2 x 4-¼ and 4 x ¾, inside 4 x 1 and 4 x ½.

Both of these cards are Perfectly Penciled for the designer paper. For the one on the left, I sponge some Polished Pink on some designer prints. 

Inspired by S Penner

This is the card that I was inspired to create, the Faux Shutter. Who is S Penner? I have no clue, but I bet it is another demo I swap with at one of the Stampin’Up! Events. It is said I don’t remember 🙁 I have a little bix that I put cards in that I want to create, and trust me, some of them are OLD, but I am on a mission to empty that box. Thank you, S. Penner, for inspiring me.
