Birthday Blog Hop

Thank You for joining us on My Cricut Craft Room's Birthday Blog Hop! You should have started at Robin's blog. If you just stumbled on my blog, please go back to http://MorphManiaCreations.blogspot.comRobin. Today I made a Tri-Fold Shutter Birthday Card for a close friend of mine. This card was a challenge for me because of all the measurements! I got the hang of it, after a while.
Here's a picture of it laying flat so you can get the full effect of the sections. I left on square blank so I could write a sentiment.
Now, it's upright so you can see the unique design of the card.
Here's a close up of the model I cut from Forever Young Cricut Cartridge. It's model 14 and size is 5 inches, the dress form on the right side is the same size. Supplies needed:
  • One 5 1/2" x 12' piece of Cardstock
  • Martha Stewart Score Board (or other scoring tool)
  • Paper Cutter
  • Patterned Paper (your choice)
  • Bone Folder
  • Craft Knife
  • Ruler
  • Adhesive
Step by Step instructions
Step 1) Place 5 1/2" x 12 piece of cardtock horizontally on your score board.
Step 2) Turn cardstock a 1/4 turn. Along the top edge, measure in 1 1/2".) Make a slit with a craft knife or paper cutter between the score marks at 2" and 10". Repeat on the other long side.
Step 3) Fold card go to for further instructions. When, you get to the site, click on resources, then tutorials followed by trishuttercard.
4. Cut 4 pieces of paper 1-3/8" x 1 7/8". Cut 2 pieces of paper 1 3/8" x 3 7/8". Cut 1 piece of paper 2 3/8" x 3 7/8". Place all cuts on the base to make sure they fit properly and adhere. Decorate and embellish. The crafter who made this tutorial is Bonnie Szwalkiewicz.
I used Recollections cardstock, buttons from Walmart, Cardz TV "Sew Much Fun" Clear Stamps and adhesive tape runner by Bazzill. Hero Arts Clear Stamp Set (high heeled shoe) and Sparkle N Sprinkle Set 392 (for the Happy Birthday Stamp).
