Well, they say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, so I must not be that old after all since I'm learning how to do tri-fold shutter cards. Now, it did take me the better part of the day to make this, what with looking at tutorials online and getting ideas and deciding on papers. I took it slow and careful because this is for my chemo buddy and I wanted it to be nice. So it did take awhile, but it was sooo much fun to do and not nearly as difficult as they look. Future tri-folds will go much quicker, I'm sure (maybe not--I'm pretty picky!). Anyhow, it's not perfect but I'm still happy with my first attempt. First off, I used the prettiest papers I had--Webster's Pages mat stack. There's no beating Webster's Pages for sheer Victorian/girly/swirly/lush beauty. (DCWV Mariposa may come close. I'll find out when those 2 stacks I ordered come in!). The cameo on the front is from Heritage and I layered that on some nesties. For the inside, I cut a tag from Sentimentals and stamped with a Studio G stamp. I inked the edges. Doesn't that go great in that spot with the flowers and music? Added a few mini pearls and fibers, and that's all this pretty paper needed. And there's hardly any scraps left over since these papers are double sided and I used both sides! How did I do? Thanks for taking a peek!
