Tri-Fold Shutter Card

I made this really cute Tri-Fold shutter card after seeing it on Split coast stampers. I have been wanting to make one and some challenges have give me the opportunity. I simply love the way it turned out and will be making more of them in the future. It is much easier then it looks. I really like making odd shaped cards and love the challenge in making them. There is a great tutortial over at split coast if you want the complete details or just follow the basics instruction below for the basic card. I am submitting to 2 different challenges, 1 Paper Variety and 1 at My Pink Stamper.


One 5 1/2" x 12" piece of Cardstock,Scor-Pal, Paper Cutter,Patterned Paper, Bone Folder,Craft Knife, Ruler, Adhesive .

Step 1

Place 5 ½” x 12" piece of cardstock horizontally in your Scor-Pal. Score at 2”, 4”, 8” and 10”.

Step 2

Turn cardstock a ¼ turn. Along the long edge, measure in 1 ½” . Make a slit with a craft knife between the score marks at 2” and 10”. Repeat on the other long side.

Now using your favorite pattern paper or special themed paper, measure each sectionand adhere to card.

Finally-Embellish & decorate.
