Tri Shutter card

This weeks Try a new technique challenge at Splitcoaststampers is to make a Tri shutter card so here's my try at it. I folded out where I should have folded in so it's different to how it should have been, I wrote the basic instructions down then tried making it in the evening without being able to use the computer to check I was making it right but I like how it turned out.

I used Certainly celery 12" x 5 1/2" card, scored at 2", 4", 8" & 10" then folded the middle at the 2", 4", 8" & 10" score's and the top and bottom at the 4" & 8" scores I should have folded the middle at 4&8 and top and bottom at 2,4,8&10.

I cut designer paper from the Rainbow Sherbet pack to decorate the card and spot on stamps with versamark ink on the rest of the card.

I stamped a gift tag from a retired hostess stamp set which I can't remember the name of and can't be bothered to go and check lol, in tempting turquoise on whisper white card, cut it out leaving a smal white border, matted it on barly banana card then cut it out and punched a hole through the tag to put some whisper white grosgrain ribbon through and desided to staple it onto the card.

Now I need to go and make one the right way for the challenge.
