I recently learned how to make a Tri-Fold Shutter Card, so I made them for my Mom and Mother-in-law for Mother’s Day.
I participated in online challenges for National Scrapbook day on the Obsessed with Scrapbooking facebook page. Debbie O’Neal at Scrap Me Quick Designs shared the directions on how to make this great card. Once you know how to cut the paper and the sizes, it’s really very easy!
How To Make a Shutter Card
Go to Scrap Me Quick Designs and get the tempate for making the Shutter Card Base. You will start with a 12″ x 5 1/2″ piece of cardstock or thick designer paper.
All of the paper is from the DCWV Lemon Flower Stack. I love the bright colors in that stack! There are several shades of yellow, green, gray, black, and glittery silver.
To decorate the card, I punched out scalloped circles and butterflies using Stampin’ Up punches. I cut the MOM out using the Simply Sweet Cricut Cartridge. I cut the letters on 1 1/4″ on the shadow setting to make them a little thicker and easier to see and glue.
To complete the card, I added a few fabric flowers with brads in the center and golden yellow pearls to the butterflies.
My Mother’s Day was great! My husband, daughter, and son helped me in the yard. I’ve been under the weather lately, so it was great to have someone haul the big bags of potting soil and heavy pots. They also pulled weeds and cleaned out my small raised bed vegetable garden.
Then my brother, sister-in-law, and my family met at my parents’ house for dinner. It was a nice relaxing day with family.
