Tri-shutter technique

This is a card I made for a friend. I found a similar card here on Tosh's Blog . It looks more difficult than it is. It takes some measuring, some cutting and some folding. I used scrapbook paper from my stash. The Friendship stamp is from Stampin' UP! and the sentiment stamp is by Stampabillities. I punched some of the flowers and others are from the Pretties kit by Stampin' UP!

Altered Altoid Tin

I made this for a friend. I used an empty Altoid tin. (Love my Altoid's!) It was perfect to put a small gift in. It is covered in Rose Red and Close to Cocoa. Stamps - Looks Like Spring and Pocket Silhouettes by Stampin' UP! A friend on one of my Yahoo groups suggested using sand paper to smooth the edges of the cardstock so the fit perfectly up against the edges. I was amazed at how much easier this one tip made making this project. I was really happy with it when I was done. Thanks for looking.
