tri shutter card (pics added)

I did my first tri shutter card tonight...holy cow that took a long time! Please tell me the next one will go quicker... I don't have pics yet, but I will update with them tomorrow. I started out to make SIL and BIL an anniversary card, but since it ended up looking so pretty and taking so long, I changed plans midway through making it. It will be a Mothers Day card for MIL now, and i am making a similar one for my mom. I think what might have taken the longest was trimming all the PP and deciding on/adding all the embellies.

by the time I finished decorating the thing, I didn't have the energy to print the sentiment out on the computer to make it look nicer...oh well!

Not sure what type of card that even is, but anxious to see it now. Smile

I started one MONTHS ago and never finished. It took me a long time to cut just the actual base. I can't wait to see yours.

Very nice! Is there a tutorial for making these cards?

Both have tutorials, and I looked at both when I went to make the first one. Now i am just doing it without the instructions.

It looks beautiful! I'd so love to make one like that, but since I have so little paper experience, it would take me even longer, sigh! Still seeing yours makes me want to...

That is beautiful! Great work! Just had a funny thought...since it says "take time to smell the flowers" you should spritz them with a light scent. LOL
