Let's Play

Join us this week at Delightful Challenges for 
"Stitching Real or Faux". 

This week we are using the new release images for Fall in our DT creations.  I made a Tri-Shutter Card using the Fall Kids, Fall Sentiments and the Simply Fall Digial Papers.

I must say that raking leaves is not one of my favorite chores.  Although, I do enjoy playing with the pile once it is made, especially if a grandchild is near by and we can take turns jumping in the pile and making a mess.

To make a Tri-Shutter card you start with a 5 1/2 by 12 inch piece of cardstock. Score at 2, 4, 8, and 10 inches across horizontally.  Now turn the paper vertically and cut between the 2 and 10 inch score lines 1 1/2 inches in from the edge.  Turn the paper around and do that step again.  You now have the base you need to begin designing your tri-shutter card.  Split Coast Stampers has a nice tutorial you can follow here.

Our wonderful sponsor this week is:

And the prize is a $20 Gift Certificate to spend in the store.

Card Recipe:
DD Stamps: Fall Kids, Fall Sentiments

Access. and Embellishments: Spellbinders Label Four, Prima Pearls, Oak Leaf punch, Lace

This is what the card looks like fully opened up. There is lots of room for special embellishments and you can leave a space to write something to the card recipient.
