Birthday Shutter

I'm getting a little bored with always making the same A2 folded card. Lately I've been trying to make some cards in different sizes. My summer Bella sistah Jane has sent me several cards and not a single one is your typical A2. She says that for her it is too hard to make a typical card. So I figured I'ld give it a try at something different.

This is my first attempt at a tri-fold shutter card. I think it came out ok even though as usual my picture didn't come out great. The card itself wasn't all that hard, but boy can it be somewhat time consuming to cut all the little pieces. Don't know how often I'll be doing this one.
I think I'll stick to your typical card. Though I've made some square cards recently which are as easy as the A2 so those are going on the list. What size, shape card do you usually make?
Enjoy your week.

What a cute card. Haven't tried that one yet...

I love making 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 sqaure cards. They do cost more to mail...but it's just more fun to have more space, lol. Another size I like is 4 1/2 by 6.

Personally, I LOVE this card! :)

I feel like I am in a rut, too. I have been making some more clean and simple cards, trying to get away from over-embellishing. Of course, then I think they look naked. LOL

Where did you find this template?
