Tri-Fold Shutter Card

How about making a tri-fold card using SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot) program? This is the easiest card to make when ya got a machine to make all the cuts and a program to manipulate it! This is the seventh card of the ninth card from Merry and Bright Collection from And, another card with a fabulous Poinsettia SVG cut file. Of course, this card is in my very favorite colors, too. Finished size folded: 4-1/2" x 5, fully extended card measures: 5" x 11".

The poinsettia: need there be a more beautiful poinsettia? The leaves are such detail and are fabulous. Sponge those edges with Close to Cocoa ink and accent with contrast DSP in the similar color and it just looks so great. I love the Yellow Stickles in the center.

The right section is a stocking (popped with dimensionals): SU Square Lattice Embossing folder used for the stocking cap. Tie a Gold Thread bow - secure and lock in using Glossy Accents.

See the Red Stickles used for the berries..............

Here's the tag in the middle section, popped with dimensionals and gold thread "tassels". Secure and lock in the tassel using Glossy Accents. A hand written message here. Middle section top and bottom DSP .........well, those pieces are cut from Recollections Card and Envelope package...........why not, they were a compatible print so I cut them up for this card instead of using "regular' 12x12 DSP.
