Tri-Shutter Card


I don't normally attempt too many new techniques. Mainly because I hate making mistakes and having to start over. But Lynn provided one on SCS today that didn't scare me too much. It's called a "Tri-Shutter Card". All it involved was some scoring and a bit of cutting. I can do that. *grin* To check out SCS's Technique Challenge today, click HERE.

All the images stamped onto the Dancing Jewel Kaisercraft dp, are by Verve. I'll list the links in the supply list below.

The decorative brad was made with Chatterbox's Easy Brad Maker Kit. All I did was punch a circle out of the dp with the punch provided and added the epoxy circle....also provided. Way easy and elegant. I made the tiny bow with a Bow Easy tool. Sharon sells them HERE, and and Jerri provides a very easy tutorial HERE.

Here's the card closed. It will fit into a standard A2 envelope.

Hope your Monday is off to a great start!!
Happy stamping!
Tosh

Holy cow, Tosh! You're a better man than me, Charlie Brown. Way better. I sure as h*** would never have the guts to attempt this magnificent card. Y'all can relax with the knowledge that this card is safe from me even attempting to case it. It's positively gorgeous, Tosh. You've outdone yourself my dear. Kudos to you!
