The lovely, lovely Leonie shared her beautiful tri-fold shutter card and I just had to try it. . .

There are so many gorgeous versions of this card out there in crafting cyber-land, I wasn’t sure if I could make a decent version, so  not wanting to “waste” any of my new papers, I used scraps of retired paper and didn’t go too overboard with the decorations, but then realised how much I really liked this card.  As per usual, once I’d made one, I had to make another FOUR!. It would have been easier if I’d printed out Leonie’s instructions, complete with all measurements, before I started.  These are all made from memory (I wish it was more photographic!), and I was pretty happy with them.  So happy in fact that we will be doing them at my class at Chelsea Heights Community Centre on September 20th. Contact me if you would like to book in. Classes are $20 and include all materials & tools, all you need to bring along is your pretty little self!

and here’s one I made for a little angel who is turning one later this month (OMG, our baby is turning ONE already! It seems like it was only a minute ago she arrived)

So this is what it looks like all closed up – and it fits onto a C6 envelope ever so neatly (that’s one of my neat knots holding the bow on the side too!) 

Till next time,

Michelle
