Tri-Shutter Card

This is the Tri-Shutter Card we made at the Club today using up those scraps that are just layout around, accumulating. Want simple, quick and easy instructions to create this elegant card?

You will start with a cardstock base 12" x 5 1/2"
Score at 2", 4", 8" and 10"

Now turn the cardstock 1/4 turn so that the 5 1/2" is at the top.

Measure in 1-1/2" and then slit between the 2" and 10" folds.
Repeat on the other long side.

Accordian fold the scored areas.
You are going to refold the center row so that its folds are opposite of the first and 3rd role. See my sample above. Refold the card. You have just completed the base of the card. Now embellish it.

Here are the measurements for the mats:
2 ea 1-3/4 x 5-1/4
2 ea 3-3/4 x 1-1/4
2 ea 1-3/4 x 2-1/4
4 ea 1-3/4 x 1-1/4
1 ea 3-3/4 x 2-1/4

The equivalent pattern paper sizes which are on top the mats:
2 ea 1-1/2 x 5
2 ea 3-1/2 x 1
2 ea 1-1/2 x 2
4 ea 1-1/2 x 1
1 ea 3-1/2 x 2

Special thank you to the ladies that corrected my measurements . . . you know who you are ;o)
