2009-05-26 5.5″ x 11″ finished TRI Shutter Sample
A while ago I worked on a template for the TRI Shutter card using 5.5″ x 11″ card stock vs. 12″. Here’s the template: Tutorial for 5.5″ x 11″ TRI Shutter card
There are a butt load of materials, but I know someone will ask lol! Here ya’ go:
Base: Olive Green Card Stock, cocoa brown
DSP: First Blush by Studio D & Best Occasions Punch-out pack by Wal-Mart
Die’s & Punches: Giga Scallop circle punch, Large standard circle by Marvey; tags & leaves by Sizzix; daisy punch by Marvey; Nestabilities Label 3
Stamps: All by Stampin Up: Sets Wonderful You; Pocket Silhouettes and Simple Sketches
Assessories: Ribbon: Offray; Gold cord: SU; Pearl seed beads; copper brad; 3-d mounting tape; UTE Clear embossing powder; chalk; white glitter puffy paint; fiskers paper crimper
Edited to add: I knew I should have explained how I did the flower medallion. I got an email asking me just that.
Building the flower medallion:
1. Start with punching a giga scallop circle (cocoa brown); rub the edges with an ink pad (your choice of color; I used copper); snip each scallop a few times to make it look flower like.
2. punch a large circle and add it to the center. (you can barely see this but it is a olive green DSP) It will cover the ends of the snipped scallop in case the petals from the flower don’t cover it.
3. Stamp the flower (not the stem) on orange DSP; emboss in detail black. Rub petals with orange chalk. Push a watermark pad over the entire flower; add clear UTE and emboss. Cut each petal completely out; set aside.
4. Punch a 1″ circle; add glue to the outer perimeter or add industrial strength tape. Take one of the individual flower petals and add it as close to the edge of the circle as you can. Add petals completely around the circle for the 1st layer.
5. add another layer of glue; add a 2nd layer of petals. Space the petals so that they go over gaps in the first layer.
6. Add glitter puffy paint or crystal lacquer to the flower’s center. Pour beads or glitter into the wet glitter glue or lacquer. Because I used pretty large pearl seed beads I also added a little crystal lacquer over the top to help hold them together. Let dry.
N-E-W!! VIDEO TUTORIAL! Beate Johns was kind enough to make a complete video tutorial on my TRI Shutter card sample. It is hosted on SplitCoastStampers.com under resources.

You’ll need to scroll down the page past the photo tutorial (don’t forget to look at the newest version of TRI Shutter card that I made along with a fan fold flower!); at the bottom you will see the video.
Not only does she make another wonderful sample for you to see, but you get to hear her cute little accent!
