Tri- Shutter card Tutorial

 I had a lot of lovely comments when I recently posted a Tri- Shutter card that I made for a teacher at school.
One or two asked for a tutorial. So here it is. And it is EASY.
The basic item you will need are
  • scoreboard
  • ruler
  • craft knife
  • pencil
  • bone folder
  • Cardstock 6" x 12" ( I use 1 piece of scrapbook cardstock and cut it in half.. I can now make 2 Tri-shutter cards)
1.  Score the card at 2", 4", 8" and 10"

2. Turn the card a quarter turn and measure 11/2" top and bottom  ( this is at the 2" and 10"  scorings) as in diagram. I have joined these 2 markings with a red pen. Cut along these lines.

3. Now fold the card with valley and mountain folds. The picture should help. I always think of the Okey -Cokey. You know the one .....In, out, in, out.......!
 4.Now decorate each panel.


5. Your card is now ready for you to embellish.

I would love to hear how you get on with this and would love to see your creations
Love Sarah XXX
