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.
