Tri-Fold Shutter Card
Todays lesson was on the Tri-fold shutter card. I've made quite a few of these, but wanted to take the class anyway. I didn't have all the supplies I would have loved to fancy it up, but I did the best with what I had available. I think it turned out ok, but need to do some touch-ups to it.
All the parts were pre-cut for us and I believe the instructor used the cricut for the flower and the top-note saying (which was layered). She had used the Swiss dot cuttlebug folder on one of the flowers, so to make it uniform, I cuttlebugged one of the layers of the sentiment top note layers. What was funny was, no one had thought of doing this til I asked to do it and everyone wanted to jump on that bandwagon. I had my brads with me and pulled one out to use as the center for the flower. I pop-dotted the flower off of the card along with the sentiment. The other ladies there thought that was a good idea and chose to do the same.
Found the class handout. The paper used was Bazzill Glaze Pink Dot. The 6-petal flowers were cut from Plantin Schoolbook. The rectangles for the sentiments were cut from Accent Essentials.
