Tri-Fold Shutter Card

This is a great card design that looks much more difficult than it really is. Laurie Willison, another TAC angel, posted her card (so awesome!) and also a link to a great tutorial. I was so excited and just had to try it. So, here you go - my first tri-fold shutter card! My class LOVED making it and that made my day! Such a wonderful group of ladies! Back to the card - the best part is that you can get two cards out of one sheet of 12" X 12" paper and all the designer paper pieces for one card from one sheet of 8" X 8" paper and that's if you cover every open space. You can also leave some open. It's great to play with all the variations.

I created a very rough sketch for how to cut the 8X8 paper. What do you think?
Supplies: Kraft 12X12 cardstock, Monkey Business, Celebration Time, Antique Spiral Clips, Brown Scrappers Floss, Rustic Chic 8X8 paper, Versamagic Jumbo Java ink

Thanks for dropping in and have a fabulous week-end! Happy Stamping!

  13. Very cute card. The DP is lovely. I always seem to notice DP because I just love the stuff! Thanks for the sketch. I'm doing a tutorial this Tuesday that requires something like this and I played in photoshop yesterday and couldn't figure out how to do it. Ugh!
