Shutter Card Components Die-namics


Add a surprise element to your cards with ease thanks to the simple assembly required by the Shutter Card Components Die-namics. Simply cut the fishtail element twice, adhere the folded edge of each to either side of a gatefold card, interweave the ends of the fishtail elements, and add a center panel with the included circle aperture die cut from it to create a surprise reveal when the card is opened. Conceal a greeting or image within to customize the look for your recipient.

The Shutter Card Components Die-namics includes:

  • Circle 2 3/8" 
  • Fishtail shutter component 3 1/2" x 3 11/16"


To create a shutter card, you will need the following pieces:

  • (1) Trifold Card Base — start with a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of card stock and score at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8"; fold both sides in towards the center to create the trifold card 
  • (2) Die-cut fishtail shutter components 
  • (1) Panel measuring 3" x 6" — score 1/4" from each short end so the finished piece when scored and folded is 5 1/2" long; die cut the circle element from this piece to create the opening on the inside of the shutter card
