Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #92 - Tri-Shutter Card

This fortnights challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers is hosted by Annette and she has chosen the theme of a Tri-Shutter Card and for an added twist the colours Light Blue, Yellow & Light Green with a stamped image.

Well first off I had to check what a Tri-Shutter card is (Novice here) lol and its a good job I did, otherwise I would have created a Gatefold card!! - lol.

I found a great tutorial on YouTube Here by splitcoast stampers.

The actual card fold is a lot simpler than it looks and I cut several cards at the same time, but the cutting of the elements to decorate is a little trickier, maybe it would be easier if the card was not so small.

Here is my finished card

and here it is closed

Card Recipe

Image - Wee Stamps - Sympathy Bugs -  I coloured with Pastel Flexmarkers and added some fine translucent glitter then cut the image out with a Spellbinder circle die and matted it onto another one.

The ovals in the middle were stamped in green and blue Brillance ink using a flourish stamp.

Papers & Card - Blue & Green - Papermania
                          Yellow & Green patterned paper - K & Co

Flower - Wild Orchid Crafts

Butterfly and Lace - I think is magnolia - I purchased these pre cut a while ago on ebay.

I really enjoyed creating this and hope you will come and join us with your own Tri-Shutter Cards
