Tri-Shutter Card


Here is my first attempt at a shutter card. I've seen them all over blogland, and decided today to find a tutorial on how to make them. Was I surprised at how easy they are! Silly me thought there would be lots of steps to do, but really there isn't! It's a 5 1/2 inch x 12 inch piece of cardstock, scored at 2", 4" 8", 10" on the short edge. Cut the long edge 1 1/2" from the edge in between both 2 " score marks. Once you crease everything, you will see where to fold the inside pieces backwards. It took a lot longer to decorate than cutting and scoring! I'm trying to get some face time through Echo Park Paper, so everything I used comes from there Springtime Collection. No stamping, embossing, distressing, just out of the pack, and onto the paper! I like that once in awhile, plus these colors are just happy! Thanks for looking in today!
