Vintage Tri Shutter Card

For this week's Mojo Monday card (well, more like Mojo Wednesday card - I was busy!) I did a tri shutter card. We'll also be making this card at my stamper's group this week-end. You'll notice that my card has the semi-circle on the left shutter and the oval/square/strip on right shutter.

I did add the butterflies to the card, because it needed a little something extra. There's a lot more space to fill on a tri shutter card then on a regular 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card! I'm not sure who I'll be giving this very special card to, but I love it!

Little hints:

*Like the vintage look? The retiring Newsprint DSP, Artistic Etchings stamp set and Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder are perfect for this popular style!  And don't forget to sponge your DSP and butterflies with Soft Suede ink. It's GREAT for 'vintagizing' your work.
*Although the adhesive pearls would be more 'vintage', I really liked the rhinestones for this project.
*Love the Early Espresso Taffeta and Satin ribbons? They're retiring as well!  Get them before they're gone for good in my ONLINE Store.
*Although most of my card is Early Espresso and the Newsprint DSP, I added a bit of Crumb Cake (center butterfly) and Cherry Cobbler to jazz the card up!
*Love the butterflies? It's the Sizzix Bigz Beautiful Butterflies die, one of my faves :)
*Want to make a Tri Shutter card yourself? Here's the tutorial:

Hope you liked this tri shutter card and keep letting stamps bring out your creativity!
