Tri Shutter Card
I made this card about 6 weeks ago for someone special. Tri shutter cards are easy to make and look so impressive when done. If you're looking for a template try http://sarahsinkspot.com/blog/tri-shutter-card or just goggle - template for tri shutter card, there are lots of tutorials to check out too. One thing to note, some of the templates use paper 5 1/2" x 11" and some use 5 1/2" x 12", pick the templates that are 12" in length. This makes the card a little bigger and it's easier to measure the scores.
The card base was Very Vanilla from SU. The paper I used was a sheet of beautiful designer paper, unfortunately I don't remember the company. It was layered on Kraft paper from Recollections.
The rose medallion on the front and the two little birds were from a Kaisercraft - Sweet Nothing Sticker Sheet. This sheet of stickers has borders, flowers, birds, even a little angel. I peeled off the roses and birds and put them on cardstock and then cut out around them. I popped them up off of the card to give a little dimension. I added some pearl bling and a little butterfly from K&Company - Susan Winget, Clearly Yours Nature.
The sentiment is from Thoughts & Prayers - SU.
This is how the card looks closed. The butterfly is Vivienne/Darla butterfly from Memory Box, I love this butterfly, it's so pretty.
Hope you've enjoyed looking!
