Motions and Folds Blog Hop

Welcome to the Motions and Folds Blog Hop!  First of all I would like to thank Ellen at Cardmonkey- Business for inviting me to be a blog stop!  If you just happened to hop on to my blog and want to start at the beginning~ hop here.  This blog hop is all about cards that have a different fold or motion.  I just learned how to make the tri-fold shutter card and wanted to share this today. 

~Sweet Tri-Fold Shutter Card~

Here is the front of the sweet shutter card!  The cupcake is from Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge. Sentiment is from Pink By Design.  They have my favorite sentiments!  

Here it opened!  I love how it turned out.  I used pastel dot paper and sweet paper from DCVW Sweet Stack.  Chocolate cake is from Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge also! Michelle from Scrappin with My Bug has made an awesome video on how to make a tri-fold shutter card.  If you are interested in learning how to make one her video is the best to watch.  I love feedback so please leave me comments and come back to see more! :)

Your next stop is Brynn!!! Have fun!
