Aloha everyone!

Well another Monday has come around … don’t they get here quickly these days … yikes! Anyway of course Monday’s mean it is time for another challenge with my CCEE Stamper friends, and a fun one it is too!

Charlene our challenge hostess for June has challenged us all to create a Tri Shutter card which was recently the Technique challenge over on SCS. I didn’t play at the time cause I was busy preparing for the beginning of the month new releases with various design teams but it was something I wanted to come back to … it is similar to something I have made years back and looked like fun. So of course I was happy when I saw this as the challenge for this week, some mightn’t be so happy though cause just the word technique can send shivers up somebody who will remain nameless spine … and I have no idea why.

Anyway there is a great tutorial on how to create these Tri Shutter cards over on Bonnie Szwalkiewicz blog which you can find here. If you own a scor-pal these are sooo easy to create as there is no measuring … one thing I did find though was I preferred to score the cut lines first and then cut them cause this made it easier to see where I was cutting without putting a cut in my card where it wasn’t supposed to go … the scor-pal helps to guide it.

I used the new Aloha Anya from The Greeting Farm which I received recently and paired that with my aloha greeting that my daughter gave me after she had gone to Hawaii. This card looks better in real life then here on the blog it is hard to take photos of 3D stuff and do them justice.


Here is how my card looks when it is all closed up …. isn’t Anya a cutie!!
