Welcome! I’ve got a fabulous fancy fold for you today. It’s a tri-fold shutter card. At first glance it looks a little complicated. But, if you break it down step by step, it truly is not. First of all, I always start things off by creating a template. That template is always with inexpensive white cardstock, that I purchase by the ream. You’re killing two birds with one stone. As a result, you have a template for future use and you haven’t messed up your beautiful Stampin’ Up! papers.
Isn’t this just fabulous? I’m loving all the dimension and interest in the tri-fold shutter card. Because I used the Woven Threads DSP, I think the card has a soft, old world sort of look. Those lovely papers include all the new 2019-2021 in-colors. Each is lovlier than the next.
One tip I would love to share – use your Stamparatus with this set. Don’t have one? Well, you need one. It’s a fabulous stamp positioning tool that makes stamping two and three step stamps a breeze. Don’t worry, in the free video tutorial at the end of this post, I’ll show you how easy that tool can be to use.
More good news to share. Our Tin Time 3D embossing folder is back in stock. That’s what I used to give those embossed panels the texture we all love. There is just so much to love about that gorgeous rose. The 3-step stamping adds fabulous color variation. Smoky Slate is a great neutral in lieu of black. And last, but not least there is a die in the bundle to cut many of the images. Can’t get too much better than that.
Above all, decorating the panels of the tri-fold shutter card was easy. All I had to do was keep some of the off cuts. No waste, you can use those to create the panels in the center of the tri-fold.
Finally, my color combination is Rococo Rose, Smoky Slate and Seaside Spray, with a hint of Mint Macaron. What do you think?
Are your ready to create one of these?
