A Birthday Shutter

Hello all my lovelies! I'm back (finally) with something to share. Yesterday was the first day since Justin was born for me to have the chance to work on something new. I love that he's such an easy baby and just sleeps on the floor wherever I put him. My older son Seth just comes into my crafting room and plays with his toys next to him.

Yesterday I attempted to make another Tri-Shutter Fold Card. I have only made one other one, (which you can see HERE) but I remembered how much I liked the finished project that I decided to do one for my mom's birthday. She adores floral prints and rose tones, so I pulled out one of my most favorite papers for inspiration.

I used two stamps from the Because of You set by Verve for the card front, stamped onto a scalloped oval diecut that I sponged with Rose Red. The middle portion of the shutter fold was papered with Night of Navy which I ran through my Cuttlebug using the newer Polka Dots embossing folder. The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from the stamp set Birthday Cheer by Paper Makeup Stamps. I love the addition of the navy satin bow as it's perfectly placed when the card is closed.

If you haven't tried this style of card yet, you should. It looks MUCH harder than it is. I promise!
