OWH Tri-Fold Shutter Snowman Card and SCS Fancy Folds Challenge WT393

Operation Write Home (OWH) is a fantastic way to spread some love for the military heros so that they can spread some hand-made love to their families and friends. OWH had a tri-fold shutter card template posted on their blog for 8.5X11" paper. Here's the .pdf diagram file. You may remember that I featured a tri-fold shutter card about a year ago on this post and that is using 12X12 paper.

I decided to take the fabulous OWH diagram and put together the following card with the A Muse Studio Chill of Winter stamp set. I LOVE those snowpeople - one even has a purse! Click on the photo to see it larger!

The cardstocks are sage, grass and cherry petite polka dot, cherry gingham and cherry layered on sugar.The ink is memento for the snow family who are colored with copics and cut out. The other inks are cherry and pebble.

As you can see, I only used one layer as I didn't want to bulk up the card. So, I used the first layering piece on the template (the one closest to the edge).
Here's what it looks like folded up. It fits in an A2 envelope and is a SUPER FUN way to share the Christmas love with your family and friends! All supplies are from a muse studio and can be purchased from my webstore: 

And, don't forget you can get a free Stamp Out Breast Cancer stamp set while supplies last!

What a fun card, Seleise! The fold is one that is so awesome, and I totally forget to use! You've inspired me to remember it! And of course, I love, love, love the dots and checks! Well done, my friend! Thanks for sharing :)
