Hi Everyone – lots of new items to share with you today… products. from the Snowflake Splendor Suite AND using those to make a Triple Shutter Card! First of all, I have never made one of these before and was concerned it would be extremely difficult. It wasn’t… It did take a bit of figuring out, which DSP to go where and making certain I had the die cuts correct. But it was super fun and I felt a sense of accomplishment after. Here’s the card…

#1

Notice how the center panel is folded mountain, valley. The upper and lower panels are just the opposite: valley, mountain. valley – three folds. Burnishing the score lines in the proper direction is one of the most important aspects of this fun fold. Notice too, that where the sentiment banners are, there is no fold. Those papers are also the same and form what I would call a ‘T’. This will help you if you can remember this when scoring and putting the papers together. Here’s another picture – a flat one that shows off every panel.

This doesn’t quite show that upper strip going in the same direction of the bottom strip, but it does! Here’s a list of products I used to make this card… dimensions are listed at the bottom of the post.

  • Snowflake Splendor Suite…
    • Snowflake Wishes stamp set
    • coordinating So Many Snowflake Dies
    • Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems
    • Snowflake Splendor DSP – 3 patterns
