Video: How to Make a Tri Shutter Card

Hi everyone!  I got quite a few emails asking me how I made my Thanksgiving Tri-Shutter card, so I thought I would make a quick tutorial on how I did it.  I'll also include the basic recipe, as well as all the measurements to make the card.

Robyn over at My Pink Stamper is having a Winter Challenge, so I thought this would be a great way to make a tutorial AND a challenge item at the same time!  I hope you enjoy it :)

Just remember, on the video I tell you the dimensions of each actual box on the card.  To make mats and add patterned paper, subtract a 1/4" from each dimension.  On the recipe I will give you the dimensions for my white cardstock mats.

  • 5.5" x 12" piece of green cardstock 
  • Martha Stewart Scoreboard (or any scoring tool)
  • Paper Trimmer
  • For front and back panels: 1 3/4" x 5 1/4" white cardstock 
  • For top and bottom panels: 1 1/4" x 1 3/4" (you need 2)
  • For the middle panels: 2 1/4" by 1 3/4" (you need 2),  2 1/4" by 3 3/4" (you need 1)
  • 3 by 5" piece of white cardstock
  • DCWV "Winter Combo" paper matstack (all cut 1/4 smaller than white cardstock)
  • Create a Critter for Reindeer (3 3/4") and "Joy" (1 1/2")
  • Crop a Dile and 3/16" eyelets
  • Martha Stewart Glitter Stamping Set (for snowflakes)
  • Martha Stewart Turquoise Glitter
  • Martha Stewart Stamp Setting Kit (for custom stamp on back)


    Have a fabulous day everyone!!

Excellent video! I've always wondered how to do this. My next question - where do you sign it when you send it? On that back panel?
