Tri- Shutter Baby Shower Card

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? Today is our daughter's birthday and she will be working today. Later we are going to meet her and our son-in-law for a meal to celebrate.

Last week I was asked to make a card for a Baby Shower. This was a first for me and I had to ask for a little guidance. I was sent a picture for inspiration though the card in question had been made with a die set. I decided to hunt around the internet to see what I could find. What I found was how to make a Tri-Shutter card.


Before you get worried the mother to be in question knows that she is having a boy. I found a YouTube film that had a template that I could download. Now being me I change the measurements a bit. I did all the scoring with my Hougie Board. Then I had to be brave and use a Stanley Knife to cut the slits. I wanted a smooth cut so scissors would't do. 


I printed the paper it has tiny blue hearts on it. The dies came from my stash. 


I photographed the card from different angles so it is possible to see all the dies I used. 


This photo shows how the card sticks out. I made a place on the back to sign. It folds up really small so it doesn't need a very big envelope. 


Here is the card with other at the Baby Shower. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

This is a fabulous Tri Shutter card, I used to do loads of these uears ago and cut them using a metal ruler and scalpel - those were the days, no dies to turn to, but I did enjoy making them, Love your baby shower card!! xx
