A Birthday Card

















I have been looking at a lot of TRI Shutter fold cards on the web. They are so interesting looking, I just had to try one. The tutorial for the one I did is here. Monday is my sisters birthday so I made this card for her. The card took some time and concentration. I had to do some careful measuring to do the base card and the DP paper. Then I had to decide how I wanted to decorate it. I pulled out a CTMH butterfly stamp set and went from there. The card on the tutorial had a butterfly so I thought that was a good place to start. It was fun and I know I will do better on the next one. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Thanks for stopping.
