Tri Shutter Card

This is my first attempt at a tri-shutter card. I had seen various videos on You Tube and thought it looked comparatively straightforward, if a little time consuming. I waited until I had bought my Fiskars paper trimmer, which allows accurate cutting within a piece of card. It arrived yesterday, so I had to have a go.
The videos I had seen, were working in Imperial measures, but I adapted the measurements to fit a piece of A4 card.
The digi papers are called Cloudy Pearl, but I can't remember where they came from and I've just had a look on the download, but it doesn't give me the information!
The stamping is from Stampin' Up and the flowers are from a set of Cuttlebug Alphabet dies.
It's for a couple of challenges
Little Red Wagon - Dry embossing, there's a small section of Cuttlebug Victoria embossing behind the heart.
Quixotic Challenges - Heavy Metal, the heart charm.
PS I just Googled the digi paper and found out that it was from Pollycraft!
Michelle was asking about the dimensions of this card.
This is what I did.


  1. this is very gorgeous and still has a neat clean finish to it too. I've yet to attempt one of these! Looks very complex

  2. Oh what a fab design. How clever.
