Tri-fold Shutter Cards for Dad...

I absolutely love the Tri-Shutter fold card that was posted on Splitcoast by sheltyx1 in a challenge. This uses a 5-1/2 X 12 " piece of cardstock scored at 2", 4", 8" and 10".

Cuts are made horizontally 1-1/2" from the top and bottom edges from the 2" score line to the 10" score line. The top and bottom rows fold peak, valley, peak, valley. The middle row is folded valley, peak, valley, peak. These sold on Sunday at the tasting party like hotcakes. Now I need to make some more.

Amethystcat made a nice rough sketch on her blog that shows how to cut the DSP panels out of 1 8X8" sheet of paper.

Looks something like this (picture not to scale):

Stamp Sets used are: And Many Mower, All Holidays, Cheers to You, Circle Circus, Oval All

I can't for the life of me remember what DSP I used. Probably some from Windsor Knot and some from To the Nines, Certainly Celery, Kraft, and mostly Timber Brown Stazon, and Sahara Sand ink sponged on to distress... I used Ready to Glitter Making Memories stickers and colored the front protective backing sheet with soft suede stampin write marker for the DAD. (if you remove both the front and the back sheet, the sticker becomes adhesive on both sides). Crushed Curry stampin write marker was used to color in the beer.
