Hi All!

I saw my first tri-fold shutter card a few weeks ago at Alesia’s house (she is my Stampin’ Up! upline). I thought it was so cool! Well, I went home and searched the web for this fantastic and creative idea. I found out that I have been out to lunch on this one… this concept has been out for a long time and there are tons of examples out there. I found this blog entry (from 2 years ago!) with the measurements and decided to go with it. Creating the base card was actually quite easy. Getting the card all decorated with a theme was what took me so long!

This month is my sister’s birthday, so if anyone deserves a card like this, it’s her. Do you seriously want to know the real amount of time it took me to make this card? Let’s just say that this is the longest video I have ever posted. This card took longer than the pop-ups. I think part of the reason is because I decided to make the first one on video, so I had no practice and no plan. I’m really happy with the way it turned out though – I wanted it to be very festive and colorful. I think she’ll like it!

I decided to create a montage of Norah Jones songs to span the video – I always get a lot of good feedback when I use her songs. Her voice is incredible!

Enjoy and have a great week!

    Hey, I love your work. You are very talented. I would like to know the measurements of this card please. The video has no audio.

      I know there is no audio – YouTube took it down because the rights to the song I used changed after creating the video. As far as size goes, the folded card is a standard A2 size.

    is good for my experience. thanks admin

    Consider frying in peanut oil, canola oil or other oils that
    are low in the bad fat. Once you have an idea of what is available,
    research different brands and choose the best quality you can afford, because it will
    be worth it in the long run.
