First Saturday with Megan {5.1.21} Megan’s Wild Gate-fold Card

Happy First Saturday in May everyone! It’s also National Scrapbook Day so we hope you have fun paper-crafting plans for the day! Megan shares some adorable “First Saturday with Megan” inspiration to spark your creativity!

Megan cleverly turned the Shutter Card die on its side to create a super sized critter-filled scene! Without using the shutter pieces, she inked up a one-layer backdrop using Distress inks, Grassy Hillside and Grassy Stencil.

To fill this fun scene, Megan combined Critters on the Savanna, Wild for You, Elphie Selfie Flip-Flop and Big Thanks! She also used images from Mermaid for You, Toadally Awesome and Butterfly Kisses to add lots of detail!

For the front of the card, Megan gave the stitched panels lots of fun texture using Woodgrain Backdrop! The belly band features a little vignette with the giraffe from Wild for You on a Scalloped Circle!

Thanks so much for this brilliant inspiration, Megan!


Thanks for visiting!
Have an amazing day!

  1. What a creative idea turning the shutter card into something else. Super cute card Megan. 🦒

  2. I love how you used this die differently. I will have to try it very soon! I love the wild for you and jungle critters in this beautiful scene!

  3. This is a very busy scene, a challenging composition – clearly devised by a master!! Your card is AMAZING, Megan! WOW!! Love the trees, the colors you chose, and how the inside is a surprise with the outside that you have. I would have been expecting a family of giraffes or some punny message about “long time no see” or something on that order. You blew me away with the gator and the elephants in the expansive savannah scene! Love!!
