Tri Fold Shutter Card

So this is my first attempt at a tri fold shutter card. I love this card, and how it looks (better when other people do it I think), if I wanted to write a big long note in my card, I don't think I would go with this format!! ha ha ha, it really takes a lot more planning than I initially thought. I started and I just kept on being like "now what, now what, what colour would look good here, what works here" was difficult, but I finally settled on everything, and I'm happy with the outcome I think. I do love ladybugs anyways...I got the tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers. If you want to do any funky folds or motion cards, that is where you can get some great tutorials!!

Recipe: DCWV Cardstock, Misc patterned paper from scrap stash, sizzizx DP, Happy Birthday misc stamps (I lost the packaging somehow and I can't remember what they are), fabric flowers from dollar store, recollections black brad, eyelet outlet jewel brads, tsukineko black ink, recollections flower border punch, green michaels ribbon.
This was fun to make, and I will definately be making it again, the reason that I'm not sure if I like it also too, is that as you can see it looks like the top bit is a bit too heavy and it sort of sags on the top. I think the reason this happens in two fold, one is because I used glue and two is because all the layers I have weigh it down too...I cannot wait to get my atg sister has it and she lives like 45 minutes away, and we have not had time to see each other since I went back to work...sadly!! So hopefully we can get together to scrap sometime soon!! Anyways, hope you enjoyed my project!!
