Tri-Shutter Card

I needed to make a thank you card for my SIL. She tackled a tedious sewing project for me several weeks ago. She did a beautiful job and I wanted to show her my appreciation for taking it on. She is a fantastic seamstress and quilter.
This is my first Tri-Shutter card. I actually expected to mess it up, so I grabbed some retired Riding Hood Red Textured cardstock as my card base. Well, I didn't mess it up, so then I needed some DSP. All the DSP I have is retired, so I went with the Riding Hood Red prints pack. I have to use this stuff up anyway! So the cardstock, dsp, ink and ribbon are all retired Riding Hood Red, except the Whisper White cardstock. The stamps are all current and include: Three Little Words and Framed With Love. I also used the Boho Blossoms punch, a red fire rhinestone brad and dimensionals.

Card opened up:

Card pulled all the way flat:
This card fits in a standard A2 sized envelope. It is quite bulky though, so I will have to take it to the post office to mail it with extra postage and hand cancelling. It took me 3 days to make this card! Of course, I wasn't working on it constantly, but there is ALOT of cutting if you take the time to mat all the DSP panels. I'm glad I finally made one of these cards. Wait till you see my next post.......I took pictures of the aftermath of making this card, and I'm gong to be brave and show them to you! LOL Just trying to keep it real after all.
