Tri~Shutter Card

 I made my first Tri-Shutter Card and it was so much easier than I thought it would be!  Thanks to Splitcoaststampers.  You can get the instructions on how to make the card HERE .

I used Martha Stewart's Scoring Board, Inkadinkadoo Thoughts for the Day clear stamps (found at Michaels) and some gems.

I matted the paper with blue.  I stamped the sentiment on some of the mat paper and used a scrap of the pink and some gems to jazz it up. 

I used some small gems to show movement for the little butterfly stamps.

I hope you like my version of the Tri-Shutter card!!  Once I get my Gypsy back, I will add all of these cuts to a file to make it a bit easier to cut out (thanks for the tip Elizabeth)!

Cute-cute-cute card, Lori.

Girl friend, I want you to know you frightened me so badly about your Expression breaking down after having it 2 years, I purchased another one from the recent HSN Scapbbooking Celebration because mine is already 2 years old. So far there's nothing wrong with it, but I'd hate to have it go out on me in the middle of a project.


Love ya, sweetie!

Oh is the pathetic thing....My E is still alive kickin'!! I was just paranoid that he (Gypsy's boyfriend tee hee) would go as he turned 2 in February. I also take him with me to Michaels for my classes and it worries me a bit....

I did not mean to make you an enabler!!!
