Good Morning All, I have been asked how to make a Tri Fold Shutter card,
This is the first time for me as well, and believe me it is not hard,
I found the measurements for this over at Splitcoaststampers.
For this card you will need -
5.5" x 12" card stock,
backing papers of your choice,
Images of your choice,
(why not pop over and see what wonderful ones we have at the character cafe.)
I have used Christmas Scamp, I just adore this image.
and this is suitable for my friend as she has 3 cheeky dogs.
Score the card on the long edge at 2" 4" 8" and 10"
the on the short side measure in 1.5" and from the 2 score line cut till you get to the 10" score line, repeat this on the other edge of the short side,
Once the two cuts are done,
you can fold it like the photo below.
Then you can
Cut 4 pieces of patterned paper 1 7/8” x 1 3/8”. Cut 2 pieces of patterned paper 1 7/8” x 3 7/8”. Cut 1 piece of patterned paper 2 3/8” x 3 7/8”.
these will make fantastic layering pieces like I have done below,
make sure they are the right sizes before you stick them, once you are happy then stick them.
I have used nice bright colours for mine.
I printed and coloured christmas scamp with sakura pens,
used mirror board, holographic board and plain coloured board for the layers.
Here are close ups of the finished card, before I added personalisation.
I do hope you will give this a go,
look forward to seeing your finished projects, you could combine them with the Character Cafe's friday challenges.
I am entering this card into the Holiday Frenzy Challenge over at Digital Ink Co.
and the anything goes challenge over at Creative Card Crew.
Thank You for popping by,
Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did making the tutorial for you.
