I've got a tutorial on a Trifold shutter card today. It was featured on the Fiskarettes UK FB page on Monday.
I know lots of people use dies for different styles of cards but I don't have a lot of dies nor a large die cutting machine. To be honest, I enjoy working from templates! This is the template I used which my husband transferred on the computer from my handwritten notes (he has his uses!):
Once cut out and folded, it should look like this:
I matt and layered the card using the Trimcraft First Edition Pretty Posy papers which co-ordinate so well with each other.
I made flowers using the Fiskars Large Flower Power Punch and the Eglantine Small Lever Punch and then just pinched them to give them a 3D shape:
I added a stamped sentiment, ribbon, gems and leaves to finish the card:
I was so pleased when another Fiskarettes UK member made a card using my tutorial and sent me a photo - it made my day! Thank you Veronica.
