Butterfly Tri Shutter Card

I have seen tons of these Tri Shutter cards on blogs, and I wanted to try one myself. It was actually pretty easy to make - it just took a long time embellishing the card! Bonnie has a fantastic tutorial here.

I usually don't make cards this complicated or embellished (I prefer a simple, clean look), but there are so many surfaces to this card that I had to fill them up with stuff!

Here's the recipe of stuff I used, and hopefully it makes sense from the photo how I used them!

Stamps: Great Friend, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Flight of the Butterfly
Paper: Rich Razzleberry textured cardstock; Cottage Wall designer series paper; Old Olive, Whisper White, Orchid Opulence, Rich Razzleberry cardstock
Ink: Orchid Opulence, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive
Embellishments: Little Leaves Sizzlets, Lots of Tags Sizzlets 4-Pack, Rich Razzleberry polka dot ribbon, Clips assortment, Designer Buttons (Playground, Sherbet), Dazzling Diamonds glitter, two-way glue pen, stampin' dimensionals, mini glue dots

I think that's everything! Thanks for stopping by today!

Blessings to you,
