Just a quick post about Tri-Shutter Cards, which I just discovered via Pinterest. THANK YOU, PINTEREST!!!
Tri-shutter cards are folded cards with five faces. They can stand on their own, thank to the folds. Here are two I have made so far . . .
I had used die cuts, some punches and some 3-d flowers – all of which I had I am embarrassed to say.
I was so happy with this one, I made a second – a sympathy card for a dear friend whose brother recently passed. I’ll hand it to her in person tonight.
For this one, I used two coordinating but contrasting papers. I used one on the first, last and center strips, and used the second one on the bottom and top strips. I think this adds more visual interest than if I just used one paper overall.
I found the template and instructions for the card here. Try it!
This one was a bit trickier than the thank you card. I had to make my own big maroon butterfly – I had no die-cut on hand. I traced one. Then I used a double-punch to make the smaller butterflies.
You would sign this card on the back.
