Shutter card

Good morning..
It was a cracking weekend wasn't it, hubby went wild camping so I was left to my own devices......wonder what I did....lol

I've never successfully managed to make shutter or stepper cards before especially when having to make them from scratch, I've never been happy with the cuts and folds. 
I've seen the tattered lace one on telly and liked it but wasn't prepared to part with fifty quid ( I know there are a few dies in the set) so imagine my delight while visiting my local craft stall to find this press cut one (never heard of them before), not as many dies but it was enough for me and I'll certainly be adding some more of them . 
So I had a play and created this card for a friend at work whose birthday is Tuesday (we get cakes as well...lol) and I have a few more on the go.




Well thanks for your visit, I really do appreciate it.....
