Love Bandit Tri-Shutter Card

This is another card we will be making in my next stamp camp. You can easily just change the sentiments from Valentine to birthday, thank you, get well or whatever you need. I love this card fold. Denise and I modified it so that we could use a 8 1/2" x 11" instead of a 12 x 12 piece of card stock. The card is still 5 1/2" tall, it is just not the full 4 1/4" when closed, but still fits into the A-2 (medium) envelope. The sparkle of the new "Sending Love Specialty Designer Series Paper doesn't show well in this scan. You really need to see this paper. It is a must have! You need to order this paper right away, as it is only available until April 30, 2010. I tried to, but obviously failed, to resist the Love Bandit stamp set. They are sooooo cute, I just love them, and I am now so glad I did get them. They are also in the Occasions Mini Catalog, so only available until April 30, 2010. You have the option of a wood mount or clear mount set. If you have note tried the Stampin' Up! clear mount blocks you are in for a real treat. I just love them. They are 3/4" grooved, making it so easy and comfortable to use. You can order our clear- mount blocks separately or as a bundle with over a 10% savings.
