Tri-Shutter Card!

That is what today's Try a New Technique challenge is on SCS! These are soo much fun to make! For the how to, visit Bonnie's awesome blog HERE.
For my card I used some Anna Griffin DP, sand cs, some Prima butterflies,(can't get enough of those!)some Studio G stamps, crocheted lace, sheer ribbon, a pearl stick pin, a Wedding Poem that I printed out of MS Word, and lots of adhesive pearls. I also made 2 hearts on 2 bottom panels out of pearls. And lastly, on some of the panels I used some marbelized paper I picked up in Mike's and ran the panels through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder.

This is the card all closed up.
I made this to go along with my wedding tin that I made last week. Hope you like it!


Have a wonderful day!

Hugs,

what do you put in the tin?

I need some ideas for a grad gift for a 18 yr old boy and a wedding gift for August... I would post about it on my blog but they read my blog sometimes! I would love some ides if you have any (I'm a beginner though... so it still has to be easy!)

Thank you Ladies!

Ter, for that size tin, you could put a gift card, a piece of jewelry, tie tacks, money, etc.

Hope that helps!
