Live Beautifully Tri-Shutter Card

I happened to catch Joy Tracey's tutorial last week to make this card. You can find it on her blog post at Obsessed with Scrapbooking. What I loved about this post was her Cricut cutfile for a tri-shutter card. It made this card quick and easy to make! I plan to use it a lot. I used the same papers she did for my friend's birthday card, but I decorated it differently. I stamped the rose with Cotton Candy ink, then sponged some pomegranate ink near the edges and restamped. I used Copic markers to shade each petal because I wanted more depth to the design. My coloring isn't perfect, but I like the depth it added.

I had already handwritten a personal message to my friend above the stamped sentiment inside before photographing this card, so I didn't take a close-up photo of that. I stamped a verse from Our Daily Bread Designs: "May you enjoy God's awesome blessings on your birthday!"

Thanks for visiting! May God bless you as you bless others with your creations!
