- Because I like my cards a little bigger than the standard I cut my base card (yellow) at 6 X 12 inches and scored it at 2 inches, 4 inches, 8 inches and 10 inches. I cut my slits from 2 inches to 10 inches, at the 1.5 inches mark.
- Fold per general directions.
- From the top it should look like this:
- The next step was to cut my background paper and add to the yellow base card.
- Then I started working on how I wanted to embellish. I decided to use a set from Hero Arts and Sizzix that comes with stamps and matching dies. Stamp your images first, color them and then, using double stick tape, tape the die in place and run through your die cut machine.
- Then I laid out my design and added these pieces to the prepared card.
This card makes a wonderful presentation, but it is not a fast one to make. So make sure the person you intend it for is worth the effort! I had always wanted to try this design, but it is not one I would do every day.
Thanks for stopping by for my view of the tri fold shutter card,
