Tri-Shutter Wedding

Hi All! I thought I would take a break from the Christmas cards and show you a tri-shutter card that I recently made. I was always intimidated by this sort of card, but was really surprised at how simple it really was! I have been on a pink and brown kick recently :) The sentiment on the inside was computer generated to personalize the card even more.

Stamps: Friends 24-7, Oval All
Paper: Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Bella Birds DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Large Oval Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch, Eyelet Border Punch, Coluzzle, Chocolate Chip Ribbon, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, Dimentionals

1. Cut a 5 1/2 x 12 piece of Kraft and score at 2, 4, 8, and 10.
2. Turn a quarter turn and, using your paper trimmer, cut from the 2 inch score line to the 10 inch line. Repeat on the other side.
3. Score all sections using the mountain/valley folding technique.
4. Open card up and reverse the folding for the center section (if it was a mountain, make it a valley, etc).
5. Decorate and embellish as desired!

If you are more visual, there is a great tutorial on SCS and Beate offers a great video tutorial at the bottom of that page. I need to start taking picture as I make to share with you!

Here is a close up of the inside sentiment...sorry it's a little blurry. It reads: To Ashley & Brian/You share a love that's true/Congratulations and best wishes/On this day you say "I do"
