Tri-Shutter Fold Card

Hi Stampers!

Yesterday I came across a great tri-shutter fold card on Split Coast Stampers.  I headed straight over to Julie Davison's blog for the directions, and here's my version:

Tri-Shutter card closed

That extra Pool Party piece sticking up in the back isn't part of the card; I was trying to hide my ink pads :)
I'm telling you guys, I have gotten MORE uses from that little Winter Frost DSP stack.  I swear, it's like the never-ending paper source!

Anyway, Julie's also got a great video on her blog explaining the card, so I hope you'll visit her and see how to make one of these yourself.  They are really simple once you get the measurements and folds down.

I'll list the measurements, cuts and scores here, but if you get confused, do go and watch her video.

Tri-Shutter Card

Card base: 5 1/2" x 12"
Sentiment base:  2 3/4" x 3 3/4"
Sentiment area:  2 1/2" x 3 1/2"
Card front & card inside DSP:  5 1/4" x 1 3/4"
Top & bottom DSP trim:  1" x 3 3/4"


Position your card base at 1 1/4" in your Stampin' Trimmer with the short side at the top, and use your cutting blade to cut a long slit in the card base from 2" down to 10" (don't start at the top, look for the 2" & 10 measurement on the "ruler" where the blade is housed).  Move your cardstock over to 4 1/4" and repeat, cutting a long slit from 2" down to 10".


Flip your cardstock so that the long side is up at the top of your Stampin' Trimmer, and use your scoring blade to score at 2", 4" 8" and 10".

Fold your card base so that you end up with two "zig zags" in opposite directions (see the last photo, above).

Attach all your DSP pieces and your sentiment and decorate as desired.

I hope you enjoy making one of these cards!

Happy stampin'!
