Tri-shutter cards

I wanted to make some tri-shutter cards but didn't want to cut lots of little pieces of paper. Time was an issue...once again! I simplified the process by leaving some of the areas blank. The top card is opened and you can see the 6 areas that were left blank. There are 5 green rectangles inside the card and one on the front under the scalloped oval. Leaving these areas blank cut down on cutting and assembly time which gets a "thumbs-up" from me. This summer has been very busy and I apologize for the length of time between posts. I made some "full front" tri-shutter cards and will share them soon. It is easier to decorate the "full" front of the card and there are a lot more decorating options.

Notice the woodpecker...it is one of Grandpa's carved birds. He was amazing.

This is the card display area in the Butterfly Garden. The butterflies are even of the shelves.

Back to creating cards in the Butterfly Garden.

I am fascinated with "Asian" type cards so I am in the process of creating some Asian themed cards. Stay tuned for a taste of the Orient.

Lovely cards, Marie. Good idea to leave some areas blank...less cutting! Love your colors.
