Beauty Abounds - Trifold Shutter Card - Day 5 - Video Tutorial

Well ..... I can't tell you how long it's been since I've made one of these Fancy Fold cards! ...... definitely years! I don't know why that is really, they are super easy to make - perhaps it's all the surfaces that need decorating. To be honest, I'd forgotten how easy they are to do .... and you can make them any height you want. I stuck with our standard European size, but have included imperial measurements below and on the Video for all those who only work in inches :o)

I love this card. I didn't even mind making a duplicate for the Video, normally I will change the colours or something to make it a little different.

The paper is from the Nature's Poem pack and looks so pretty. It has Soft Suede in amongst it's background, which is why I chose that colour as my Card Base.

I added a panel on the back for you to write your message on.

It closes to become a 'normal' size card, although a little bulkier. It still fits nicely into one of our standard envelopes but you could make a little box to hold it if you prefer :o)

Here is the Video ...
