Christmas Shutter Cards

Well I just surprised myself by noticing that I never updated my Friendship Shutter card seen here to include a larger version.  How crazy is that?  So seeing that I now made another Christmas one I thought I should get those posted.
These are just larger  than the friendship one.  The friendship one fits in a regular size envelope.  You know, the ones that you can buy in the office section of the dollar store. This larger size fits in the legal size envelopes.  So as far as envelopes go it's not going to cost you an arm and a leg for these special fold cards.


Inside on left and closed
on right.  Ribbon keeps card closed.

Then the other night I made this one.

Different papers, different look.  I am going to be making alot of these for sure.  It is a great card for using up scraps, which I always have a ton of.  Here are the measurements.

1 piece of cardstock 9 x 12
score on long side at 3, 6, and 9 turn and then score on short side at 3 and 6

With short side at top of trimmer line cardstock at the 3" mark and move cutter (without cutting) to the 1 1/2" mark cut from 1 1/2 to 10 1/2".  Slide cardstock to 6" and repeat the cut from 1 1/2" to 10 1/2"

You will need 2 pieces of same card stock 3 1/4" x 9 1/4"...1 for the front and back piece .

10 pieces DSP 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" or for smaller border 2 7/8" x 2 7/8"
4 pieces 1 3/8" x 2 3/4"

Front panel DSP 3x9 you do not need to decorate back side.

Embellies of your choice, ribbon of your choice.

Hope you enjoy making this card as I have.  So easy and goes together quickly.
I'm going to try my Graphic 45 papers next.

Til later...............................
