It's the first time I've made a shutter card too and it took me a while to work out the dimensions so I got the best use of a sheet of A4 card. I didn't quite get the measurements quite right so the card doesn't actually fold flat (I'll blame the embellishments!) so I'll make a box for it to go in.
All the papers are from an unavailable (sorry!) paper collection from Funky Hand called Boys and Girls and it really is a fab set of papers! I've added buttons from my stash, tied them with button twine from The Ribbon Girl, a computer generated sentiment and a sliver anchor charm which I've just noticed, has spun round on the photos!
I've made a layered oval tag for the message to be written on and it will hang over the back of the card when its packed into the box.
Quite pleased with how its turned out!
