Tri-Shutter Card

Patterned Party Tri Shutter Card

Another card we made at the September stamp club workshop was a Tri-Shutter card.  I was a little indimidated by this style of card.  But after following a great TUTORIAL on Splitcoaststampers I found that it really wasn't too hard to make.

After cutting the 5-1/2 x 12 card stock to make the tri-shutter folds, the rest was very easy to put together.  
Stamping was done only on the main image panel. By the way, add adhesive to only ONE side of the main image panel.  Otherwise your card will stick shut.  This has happened to me many times!!

Also, I would have liked to have coloured the balloons with markers right on the stamp, but I don't have the Pool Party Marker.  So stamped the balloons on scrap card stock in So Saffron and Pool Party ink and then cut them out.  Not to quick!
