My first Tri-Shutter attempt

Last weekend I was planning the projects and samples for my Fun Folds class on Thursday, Feb. 17th.  One of the projects we will do is a tri-shutter card.  This simple, yet complicated-looking, card is an interesting way to switch up your cardmaking.  Here is the one I created in preparation for the class:

Tri-Shutter card using Springtime Vintage DSP

Butterflies and flowers...can't get any spring-ier than that!

I am so loving this DSP from the Occasions Mini!  It is so pretty and girlie!  It certainly made this card easy to put together!  It also has some lovely colours in it...rose red, always artichoke and very vanilla, to name but a few!  Now, I'm not going to post instructions for this card until after my class...I do want people to come!!  I am working on a tutorial for how to make the flower and will post it on the tutorials page (see tab at the top of this page) when I have it finished.  If you'd like to see this card in person, sign up for my class next week and join us for three projects that are a little out-of-the-ordinary!  Now it's time for my son's music class...I must run!!
