Last one for now- Tri-Shutter card #4

Here is the last of my recent Tri-Shutter card marathon! This one was also sold at the Save the Boobies fundraiser (hehe, I just like saying it)!

I used textured Bamboo cardstock for the base and B&T papers from the Silhouette paper packet (timeless, isn't it). I stamped the two hearts from Soul Mates- the larger one on Amythest textured cardstock and Pansy Purple ink, the smaller on white cardstock in Petal- this one is also on foam squares for dimension. The finishing touches are not CTMH, but Stickles in Diamond and Purple around the two hearts and in the center of the flowers on both the left (front) and the inserts inside. Here are some of the other sets I used:
Picture Perfect- flower corners and vines
Make it Count- sentiment
Be True- petal words (friend, happy, laugh, special)

I am sure there will be more of these in my future. Since my very best friend is coming to visit this next week (we are going to the U2 Concert together- a tradition since high school!!!), I probably will not create/post again until next week. So stay tuned...

Save The Boobies (and a TriShutter Card, too)!

Can you stand to see another Tri-Shutter Card- I hope so, because I have two more to show you (I will post the second in a few days).

First, I wanted to tell you about the Save The Boobies Fundraiser last night. It was Amazing! So many good friends, many dressed in Pink, and the warm outpouring of support for my friend, Preet, was simply awesome. I brought many of my hand-made cards to sell, as did my dear friend Sally Jo, and we brought in $136 for the cause!!! My offer still stands that if you would also like to donate $10 or more (the link is in the previous post), I will make you a custom Tri-Shutter Card!

Here is the first card I sold last night... I admit, I was a little sad to see it go, as I really enjoyed making it. The pictures do not do it justice- I used a lot of glitter on this one, and boy does it sparkle!

I used Grey Wool cardstock as the base and Grey Flannel and textured Crystal Blue (and the lighter reverse side) for the insert panels, and there is glitter on all of the little flowers. The big flower is the "rock-n-roll" technique in Chrystal Blue and Indian Corn Blue on the outside. I also used Grey Wool ink for the sentiment.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Another TriShutter Card for SAVE THE BOOBIES!

I admit- I am addicted to making these Tri-Shutter Cards! I have three more to post, which I will do over the next few days. I am making these for my friend, Preet's Save the Boobies fundraiser that is taking place tomorrow. I will have a few of these Tri-Shutter cards there for sale, from which 100% of the price will go towards Breast Cancer Research. If you would like to donate as well, the link to her site is:
For every person that donates $10 or more, I will send you a custom Tri-Shutter Card! you pick from a selection of paper, stamps, themes, etc. Just leave me a comment here and let me know.

Onto the card- I used Emporium Paper and the Coffee Shop Stamp Set. I also used one of the stamps from the Everyday Celebration kit for the inside. I made this to hold a Starbucks gift card:

Thanks for everyone's support!

Tri-Shutter Card- Bon Appetit!

I have been wanting to try this awesome Tri-Shutter card pattern for awhile, so I finally just sat down to do it! I love the Bella paper and knew it would go perfectly with my Bon Appetit- I have had this stamp set since it first came out but inked it up for the first time tonight!

I am using this card as a gift card holder for a Birthday present. I really like the unique fold and the way it came together- much easier than it looks! Enjoy!
