Hi all - are these Tri-Shutter cards the most beautiful cards ever designed????? I think so. Mind you after making this one I swore I would never make another one again!!!! LOL
I had a card making day (all day and into the night) with some friends at the end of the school holidays and 3 of us decided to have a go at making one of these cards. On the day, I was the only one who persevered (the other two threw theirs LOL) 'cause I felt I had no choice LOL as I was making it for a friend's 40th and wanted a really special card and also it was the same papers I was using to make her a gift. (which I gave up on in the end and bought something instead LOL) One of the others did also end up finishing theirs at a later date.
These cards, I find, frustrating up until the patterned layers are on and then it is plain sailing from there. Really, they are not as hard as I am making them out to be, but we just struggled getting the shaped pieces to fit nicely. But after ones finished, one will notice that the small discrepancies are not noticeable because of the layers and folds. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.... LOL Great tutorials here and here.
I have made mine so that I have the centre panel to write on.
Ps: But they are so beautiful and so intriguing that I have just finished another one for another friend's birthday. But that's for another day. Stay tuned Melissa for more postings..... :D
