Something A Little Different

I'm not at all confident when it comes to complicated card folds or shapes. But I spotted something in Craft Stamper yesterday and had to have a go.

The magazine article calls it a 'Tri-Shutter' card, but I'm not altogether sure why. But no matter!

I used some Christmas paper left over from last year in a lovely golden brown/turquoise colourscheme, and added some Craft Stamper freebie stamps. The stars are from (I think) an issue about a year ago, and the 'Celebrate' and bauble stamps are more recent and they were all stamped with Versamark and embossed in Champagne Gold. I added colour with bronze and turquoise Perfect Pearls used as a watercolour since they were handy and provide a bit of lustre. The images are all matted on gold satin card.

The result is different enough to look a bit special, I think, but it's still fairly understated. I might be doing more of these! But, I might do myself some templates first to make the folding and cutting easier.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Creative Cottage who are looking for embossing (stamped images),
A Spoonful of Sugar who are looking for punching and/or diecutting. (Stamped images and their mats were cut with nestibilities.)
Delightful Challenges who are looking for circles
Stampavie whose theme is Christmas.
