Tri-Shutter Thanksgiving Card

Tri-Shutter Card - click for larger image Okay, this might be my last ‘Thanksgiving’ share!

The ‘tri-shutter’ card looks a lot harder than it actually is (as evidenced by the fact that I could do this at all!).

I hand scored/cut all of the tri-shutter cards for our Fall Stamp Festival that I am sharing here.  The good news is that I can now officially cut and score one of these in my sleep!

I have included the diagram… you know the drill, score on dotted line, cut on the solid lines… fold as shown (first time is the hardest).

The paper is the awesome (and limited time only) designer series paper ‘Autumn Meadows’ (#116769) and the greetings from the limited edition set ‘Grateful Greetings’ (#116511).  The stamped leaves (center panel) are also limited edition, ‘Autumn Splendor’ (#116503, $20.95).  And all of the above can be viewed in the Holiday Mini Catalog here and, of course, purchased through my online store!

The awesome 3D leaves is the Sizzix die ‘Leaves #2’ (#113459 for $15.95) and I used both solid papers (stamped with texture stamps) as well as cut the designer series papers.
