Tri-Shutter card

Well I'm back after a little break from regular updates here. It's been a very busy past few weeks, with three birthdays in our family, including my baby who's turned ONE. I just can't believe how quickly his first year passed by. I'm sure the next one will be just as fun!
So between all the excitement, I did manage to stamp up a few creations. Here is one of them: a Tri-Shutter Card. I've admired these for some time now, always thinking they looked a little complex. But so many others were making them with stunning results, so I knew I just had to try one out. And let me tell you, they are super easy and so much fun.

I've used the Great Friend stamp set, teamed up with Walk in the Park Designer Series Paper. These are both from the new Spring Mini - available now!!
I used this tutorial from Jackies house of cards - the instructions were very easy to follow and she also has some great pictures to follow.
This card was sent off to a wonderful friend for her birthday last week, so I will def. be making another of these fun cards very soon!

WOW WOW WOW Chantelle this is amazing! I have seen them around a bit as well and thought nope put that in the too hard basket, but if you say it's easy I'm going to listen to you and give it a go! Your card is just stunning. So glad to see your back :) *hugs*

that's really cool chantelle - it actually does look really complicated! i'll have to give it a go. i really like that patterned paper with all the leaves on it too - are the other designs just as pretty? i might have a look in the catalogue :)
good to have you blogging again!
