Gone Fishin' Tri-Shutter

A few weeks ago on Splitcoaststampers, Lynn challenged everyone to make a tri-shutter card for the technique challenge. I wasn't able to participate that week, so I decided to make it one of the challenges for the CCEE group this month. It is such an easy technique, and I absolutely love how it looks. It even folds up to a regular A2 size card so you can easily mail in a regular envelope. You can view Bonnie Szwalkiewicz's tutorial on how to make these here.



I've had this Gone Fishing sign and fishies on a wire for a loooooong time and have finally put them to good use. I can't believe it, but there's no stamping on this card. I used some older SU designer paper from a scrapbook package, the fishing theme embellishments, large and small brads, and SU circle, oval, and word window punches. The polkadotted dp is chocolate and sage shadow, although it looks black in this photograph.

If you would like to play along and see the tri-shutter cards my friends made, please visit our CCEE blog.

Stamps: none
Cardstock: Sage Shadow, SU scrapbook dp
Accessories: Gone Fishing embellishments; brads; oval, circle, and word window punches

I came here to tell you that you stink at fishing cuz those fish are dinky! I hope you threw them back. Your boat would be embarrassed!

Now, as far as the card! Its awesome! Cuz you are a much better cardmaker than fisherwoman! Keep your cardmaking gig!
