Adapted Tri-fold Shutter Card

Hello dear reader!  I hope your weekend was great.  I enjoyed mine, with Friday as the first snow day of the school year.  A lot of things were accomplished at home, and I was able to play in my craft room as well.

Before I show my card for today, I want to start with Oozak's latest challenge for this month called "Anything Goes + Red".  The prize this month is an awesome collection of Annie's Attic books.  Six of them to be exact.  And for the month of December, DT video coordinator Sandy Allnock made a video tutorial for Oozak about an "adapted" version of the Tri-fold Shutter Card.

I have seen the Tri-fold Shutter Card a thousand times on the internet, but I just didn't have the interest to even try making one.  I was relieved  to know that there is another person I'm  on the same page with about this particular type of card.  Sandy was able to explain very well why, at least from my part.  After watching her video, I got so excited that I couldn't wait to share it with you.  On the same day, I was able to make my first Tri-fold Shutter Card adaptation.

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Georgia Pacific, DCWV
image/sentiment:  Flourishes
ink:  Stampin' Up, Copic, Tsukineko
tools:  Spellbinders, Stampin' Up ticket corner punch
misc.:  embossing powder (Recollections, Tsukineko)
adhesive:  Scotch, mounting tape

This card is designed for mailing via the PO.  Given there are already a good number of folds and layers, I opted not to put any embellishments.


I love the fact that there is one whole area to write or put something else on.  You can also add more stuff on the silver rectangle you see below, and the smaller areas even.

Kudos to Sandy for sharing an awesome video.  I always like to try something new, and I had so much fun making this card.  You can also see this video on Sandy's Youtube channel:  Sandy Alnock, and the official Oozak website.

'Til next blog!
