When I first saw a card made like this I thought it was a tri shutter card. After studying the card I realized it wasn’t a regular Tri Shutter Card, but rather variation of one. I really liked the variation so I decided I’d try to make one. It was named a “Double Display Card”. The template for this card can be found at http://www.susanbluerobot.com/2009/1...play-card.html. I made 2 copies on legal size printer paper and cut them to 6” x 12”. Save 1 for your template and use the 2nd to make a sample of the card. Always make a sample so you don’t waste good paper in case you have a problem.
A simple way to transfer your template to your good cardstock is to paper clip your Template to the cardstock. Then, lay it on your cutting mat. Use your piercing tool to poke a hole at each corner and where the lines meet. Save the Template to use again. Using your ruler and embossing tool, join the marks together. Now, Using your ruler and Exacto knife, cut on the cut lines as shown on your template. Fold your mountain and valley folds as directed. Be sure to make hard creases on the folds.
Using your template, make patterns for decorating your card. When you cut them out cut them a little smaller then the original so you have a border around them. I kept the patterns so I could use them next time.
All of the DSP is from “Heartfelt Creations Delicate Aster Paper Collection”. I used 2 different sheets from the collection so I’d have the contrast. I cut the front closure using Spellbinders Labels 18 – #4 out of cream cardstock. I traced the outside of the die onto Lavender cardstock for the outside edge. The flowers and Butterfly are from the Delicate Aster Paper Collection; hand cut and adhered to the cardstock. I used a decorated blank verse card from the collection and stamped my verse in Lavender.
