Palm Tree Birthday

I'm back with another card using the July release stamp set, Bon Voyage, from Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD). This week I chose to make a Tri-Shutter card. ODBD has a pre-made Tri-Shutter Card base that makes this type of card so easy to put together. However, I didn't have one of their card bases so I made my own. I started with a piece of cardstock that measured 5.5" x 12". On the 12" side I scored it at 2", 4", 8" and 10". Then with the 5.5" side at the top of my trimmer, I slid the cardstock over to the 1.5" mark and then cut between the 2" score mark and the 10" score mark. I repeated this on the other side. Here is the Tri-Shutter Card tutorial I used from Splitcoast Stampers. Cardstock mats and patterned papers from the Blooming Garden Collection and the By the Shore Collection cover the card base.

The largest image was stamped onto a Double Stitched Circle die cut and then heat embossed. Distress ink was applied to the circle for the sky. Another portion of the largest image was masked and stamped on a smaller circle and a 2nd bird was added before it was also heat embossed. The sentiment was white heat embossed on a Stitched Oval Die Cut. The smaller image was white heat embossed on the small panels of the card. Baker's twine and buttons from my stash add a little extra interest to the vertical panels. The largest interior panel gives a space for writing a message to the recipient.
