Tri-Shutter in White




Today’s card is another Tri-Shutter card. I really wanted to make one that was predominantly white. And with the stamps I wanted to use, it worked better to change the orientation. You can find the tutorial here.

The only stamping was done with two stamps from the Stampin’ Up! set called Elegant Greetings. I thought they fit with the elegance of white. All the white that I used is textured. I embossed some sections with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and some with a D'vine Swirl folder. I left the areas unembossed that had stamping. I used Oval Nestabilities – plain and scalloped - for the front sentiment panel and sponged the edges with Baja Breeze. All the matting is done with Stampin’ Up!’s Baja Breeze cardstock. I punched the butterflies with a Martha Stewart punch. I added white dots with a gel pen, and then pearls for the bodies.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

Lynette, Your card is absolutely gorgeous. I've never made a Tri-shuuter card. It looks a tad time consuming. Thank you for sharing it with all of us.
