Tri Shutter Card

The August design team challenge for the Crop Chocolate design team was to do something we had never done before.  I chose to make a tri fold shutter card and I love how it turned out.

My August project for the Crop Chocolate design team was to do something I had never done before.  I decided to make a shutter card.  Here is my card and here is the link to the video.

5 ½” x 12” card stock
Scoring tool
Pattern paper (MME So Sophie Paper)
Craft knife or sliding blade trimmer

Take the card stock horizontally (long side) and score it at the 2”, 4”, 8”, and 10” marks.
Turn the card stock 90 degrees and cut between the 2” and 10” score marks 1 ½” in on each side, you will have 3 sections of the card but it will be in one piece.
Fold the score lines so that front and back are a sideways “T” and the other flaps tuck in behind.

To do this you will fold as follows:

  • Take the middle section and fold the second score line out (mountain) and the next one in (valley). Note you will fold at 4”, and 8” marks. 
  • One the top and bottom sections you will fold on all score lines the first score line fold will be out (mountain), and then in (valley), and then out (mountain) and then in (valley) again. Note you will fold at 2”, 4”, 10”, and 12”. 
  • When the card is closed it will be 5 ½” by 4”, so if anything is sticking, chances are something is folded the opposite direction.
Blog Candy Update:  I am expecting my package in the next day or two and when I do I will post some blog candy.  I was hoping it would be here already but it got stuck in customs.  Check back soon.
