Tri-Fold Shutter Card Tutorial

This will be at the top of the post until April 30th. 
Be sure to scroll down.

Happy Thursday Everyone! Today is my turn to post for Crafter's Companion as one of their Design Team members. I made this Tri-Fold Shutter card and used the iconic kissing couple of S.W.A.L.K. stamp sets as my focal point. The S.W.A.L.K. rubber stamp set is called " A Little Kiss" and it is launched today along with the other 5 sets. You can check more details about my shutter card here

Below is the tutorial on how to make this unique Shutter Card.

Tri-Fold Shutter Card Instructions

1. Start with a 6” by 12” piece of cardstock.
Note: See scoring instructions using Ultimate Crafter's Companion Tool in Blue Text.

2. Score paper at 2”, 4” , 8” and 10". 
( Line 4 on Box Lid. Fold once and score at line 4 again. Repeat on the other side).

3.  Turn cardsctock ¼ turn. Along the side, measure in 1½" for both sides. 
       ( Line 3 on Box Lid )

4.  Make a slit with a craft knife between score marks 2" and 10". Repeat on the other long side. 

5.  Fold card as pictured. This is the base for your card to decorate.
