Top Tip Tuesday Tri-Fold Shutter Card

Hello and welcome here! It's Challenge time at Top Tip Tuesday, this week the Challenge is to have more than 1 fold on your card/project. The Tutorial is a Tri-Fold Shutter Card by Janette.

Challenge - More Than 1 Fold
Tutorial - Tri-Fold Shutter Card

Here is my card to hopefully inspire you.
Card Size: 4" x 5.5"

The Sponsor's for this week:

Simon Says Stamp - $20 gift voucher for their store

Sew Sweet - £10.00 voucher to spend in their shop

Stash Books is offering the top Tipper - Calling Cards-Connect With Style book

I was at a Craft Show this past weekend selling some of my handmade paper creations. It went very well, thank-you to those who stopped by and said 'Hi'!! Now I have to start restocking my card stash for next year. I'm in need of some teen girl cards, and I thought I would start right away with this card.

When open, the card measures 5.5" x 12". I changed up my measurements just slightly from the Top Tip Tutorial. I needed mine to fit in a regular envelope. The card base measures 5.5" x 12", I scored it at 2", 4", 8" & 10", I only measured 1.25" in from the edge to cut my slits (instead of 1.5")

I added Red Stickles on the frame edges, and gave her a red rhinestone ring...a ruby ring:) It's difficult to see, but I added Gold Ice Stickles to the corners of the Caning Pattern (around the sentiment 'Beautiful').
Recipe: CTMH PP-That's Amore, CTMH CS-Colonial White & Black, CTMH Ink-Black & Tulip, CTMH SS-Be Yourself, Distress Inks-Anique Linen, Marianne Designs Frame LR0116, Nestabilities-Labels 18, Martha Stewart Anywhere Punch-Caning Pattern, EK Success-Wrought Iron Corner Punch, Foam Squares, Red Stickles, Gold Ice Stickles, Red Rhinestones, Lace Ribbon.
