After seeing these Tri-Shutter cards around for a while I decided to finally make one. (Well, with a little boost from Scor-Pal who asked me to convert it into metric for another Metric e-zine they are putting together.) So I really made a metric one first and made this one in imperial this morning.
I have to say looking at them is intimidating, making one, not so much. The most difficult part is getting the in and out folds down correctly. Having great patterned papers make it easy, too! Directions may be found here Tri- Shutter Card. I changed up the way the front and back panels were cut and made them 2 pieces.
The stamping is simple and straight forward, a bit of 1st and 2nd generation stamping of the floral silhouette on the three image panels. Sentiments on 2 of them, the final one for a personal note or signature. I kept the patterned papers symmetrical, I've seen them with asymmetrical panels, but I like the look of symmetry here.
I have great news! Morgan went back to school yesterday and made it the entire day without a headache. So she is on the road to recovery. Of course, she can't play or practice for a little while longer, but she will be able to go out and support her team from the sidelines. Another team mate broke her wrist in last weekend's game - out for the season.
It's a tough start to the new club season for their team.
Have a Terrific Tuesday!
