40th Birthday Tri-shutter Card
I have been wanting to make one of these tri-shutter cards for so long and finally did. My friend really likes blue and butterflies and is not very girlie so I knew it would be a challenge to make without being too flowery. It took me over a week to finally put it all together as I really was not sure about the papers being right (not my usual choice) and In the end I just left them and they have grown on me.
There is a tutorial here for making one of these cards, but if you are fortunate enough to own a cricut expression cutting machine and design studio, Okielady has a cut file and step by step instructions you can use to save time measuring and cutting.
For decorating this card I used Teal Embossing powder, cuttlebug corner swirls, a peel off butterfly sticker, quickutz scalloped ovals, stamps, prima flowers and of course some bling!
