Tri Fold Shutter B-day Card

Here's my first attempt at a Tri Fold Shutter Card. 




I made the fan fold rosettes using my Martha Stewart Scoring Board.  I used a 1.5 inch by  12 inch strip of paper for the bigger one, fan folded it, glued the ends together to make a circle, stood the circle up and then pushed the  top edge down toward  the centre.  This was glued onto a .5 inch circle to keep the rosette together.  The smaller rosettes were made the same way except  I used a 1 inch by 12 inch strip of paper. 

The butterfly and flowers were from my "stash" (clearance finds from Michael's).

I stamped the sentiments (inexpensive Studio G stamps) and I used gold embossing powder to give them dimension.

The only Cricut cut on this card is the frame in the centre which was cut from Ashlyn's Alphabet.  I intentionally left it blank to be used for a personal handwritten message



The coordinating envelope was made from a 8 3/4 by 8 3/4 sheet of card stock using the envelope scoring instructions that came with the Martha Stewart Scoring Board.

I'd love to hear your comments on this card.
