This Tri-Fold Shutter card is so much fun to make. After making my first one, I just knew I had to share it. This video replay of my September 16th Facebook Live includes a step-by-step demonstration so you can make Tri-Fold Shutter Cards too. They may look intimidating, but with my demonstration and tips, you'll see that it's quite easy to make.
The Tri-Fold Shutter cards in this video and post feature the So Sentimental Bundle from the Annual Catalog and the very beautiful Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper which is just one product in the gorgeous Poinsettia Place Suite in our Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. I love mixing and matching products from different catalogs and suites for more creative possibilities.
Enjoy my video demonstration then get to work making a Tri-Fold Shutter Card of your own. I'd love to have you share your creation with me and others on my Stampin' Peace VIP Facebook Group.
I used three different patterns from the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper pack for this card. You can, however, use up to 4 or 5 different papers if you really want to show off your Designer Series Papers.
This view shows the back of my Tri-Fold Shutter Card. I added some Whisper White card stock for writing a message. Tri-Fold Shutter cards are great for sending from a group of people. There's plenty of room on the back for lots of well wishes and signatures.
Do you see the slight difference in this card from the one pictured above? I introduced a 4th paper pattern for the center section of the card.
