Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 92

This time's challenge was set by Annette, and she wants us to make a tri-shutter card! Now, I had no idea what a tri-shutter card was, so I first had to check out some tutorials to get the basic design.

Now, when it comes to trying out a new fold, I tend to head for Photoshop Elements. I traced out the various elements there, and then added a background colour, then layers of digital paper and the panels, adding wording to two of them.


I printed the image and cut and folded as required.

I used paper, images and other elements which are from Debbi Moore's Venice collection and are available as freebies on her site.
I cut out the images and matted them onto some Spellbinders die cuts.
I finished with some die cut flowers and a feather. The flowers were made using Sizzix dies.

I hope you can join us this week!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Bearly Mine where anything goes,
The Perfect Sentiment where anything goes (with a sentiment),
Wags n Whiskers where anything goes,

Wow!!!!!!! This is absolutely stunning! Love, love, love the colors and your images and coloring. I've never tried one of those either, but I may have to give it a go. Thanks for joining us at Perfect Sentiment this week. Good luck.

Fabulous card, the gold works really well with the purple backing papers!

Well done for getting the Tri-Fold to come together - mine was a complete disaster!

Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog



Happy Crafting!

My printer is rubbish at printing on card... it only takes the very thin sort, and that is no use as a base card. So envious of your method - good idea though!
