Stampin'B Challenge - Tri-Shutter card

The hostess for the Stampin'B's DT Blog challenge this week was Joanne (jojot). She wanted us to make a tri-shutter card, which actually was quite fun. You can use up lots of your scraps on a card like this.


The base of my card is Not Quite Navy and the scraps come from various Christmas paper pads. I want to say that they are probably all by DCWV, but don’t quote me. The main snowflake is from Just Rite Stampers’ 3 ¼” Christmas Stamp Ensemble – the center stamped on White and the outside stamped on Not Quite Navy. Both are cut out with Nestabilities circles. I added a few punched-out snowflakes to the red panels. The little snowman is a clear dollar stamp from either Michaels or Joann (not sure which), and the Snow People sentiment stamp is from The Artful Stamper. Red, blue and gray may not be traditional Christmas colors, but I’m happy with the way this turned out. Sometimes you have to go outside the box – in more ways than one!

Stamps - Just Rite Stampers Christmas Ensemble, The Artful Stamper
Paper - Not Quite Navy, various DP
Ink - Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
Accessories - White ep, Nestabilities, snowflake punch
