When I saw a Tri-Shutter Card for the first time, I knew I wanted to make it for a special occasion. What better time than for my husband's Christmas Card? I found a tutorial for the Tri-Shutter Card in the resource tutorials over at Splitcoaststampers. The step-by-step instructions made a card that looks complicated very easy to make. I chose to decorate my panels the way Beate did in her video tutorial. Cutting the layers to size was the most time-consuming part.
The poem on the front was a freebie I found on the internet at this site's Christmas Love Verses. I printed the poem on regular copy paper and then attached a piece of pattern paper over the top. I ran it back thru my printer so that the poem would be printed right on my patterned paper. I inked the edges of all my patterned papers.
