Tri-fold shutter card

This weeks projects was a good one! I have never made a tri-fold shutter card before and I could not wait to try! I am always looking for fun and new ways to fold a card. It really adds a little extra :) I really love how it turned out and have added it into my 'list of ideas of ways to fold my Christmas cards for next year'....yah I know I am crazy! I start planning my Christmas cards almost a year ahead. It takes me a little while to make 50 cards by hand so the more planning I can do the better! Ok so onto the card! ~*Jen*~ ~*Recipe*~ ~*DCWV Black Currant cardstock ~*Cricut cartridge Gypsy Wanderings, George Basic Shapes, Gypsy Font ~*Black ribbon ~*Pearl accents

Picked out my paper (I actually broke into my all time love Black Currant stack for this card*gasp* yes I know its a shock)

Laid it out on my Gypsy (I love my Gypsy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Put my paper onto my cutting mat

Cut and folded the base of my card

Cut all my layered pices

Started to adhear the layers

Its starting to look like a card!

Added my embellishments

All done!!
