Tri-Shutter Birthday

April 16, 2020

Today’s Fancy Fold is a Tri-Shutter card and you can find instructions for this card on Splitcoast Stampers if you need them.  I cut the card base from Night of Navy card.  The layers are Whisper White and the Designer Series Paper is from the Country Club Designer Series Paper.  I used both sides of the one paper. To decorate the long central panels on the top and the bottom of the card, I cut a strip of Garden Green card using my retired Fringe Scissors to give a grass effect.  The cut strip is attached to Whisper White card before being attached to the card base.  I cut a rectangle from Whisper White card and stamped the golfer image from the Clubhouse stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the image using Night of Navy, Sahara Sand and Ivory Stampin’ Blends.  I used a Blender Pen and Garden Green ink to colour the grass.  I attached the images to the card front, making sure to only add adhesive in the appropriate places.  For the middle panel I stamped the gold ball image from the Clubhouse stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the image using Sahara Sand, Light Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends.  I used the Blender Pen and Garden Green ink to colour the grass.  I stamped the golf stick using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I didn’t add any additional colour to the golf stick image.  For the last panel I stamped the greeting from the Clubhouse stamp set using Night of Navy ink.  I also stamped the flag image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the flag using the Light Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend. I stamped the balloon image from the Bonanza Buddies stamp set over the grass part of the image using Garden Green ink which I had stamped onto scrap paper first.  I stamped the “happy birthday” from the Clubhouse stamp set onto Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink.  I punched both short ends using the Triple Banner Punch and sponged Night of Navy ink around the edges before attaching the greeting to the front panel.

It’s been a while since I made one of these cards but I do love this fancy fold.  This type of card looks very special when it is open with all the different sections and folds.  However, as you can see from the last photo it folds up to fit inside a standard envelope.  Isn’t that great, I’d love to know if you have made one of these fancy folds.

Bye for now,

Kris
