OSA Sketch Layout #30

I haven't done one of the OSA Card Layout challenges for a few weeks, and this one certainly is a challenge! We had to make a Tri-Shutter card.....you may have seen one of these cards on Splitcoast Stampers lately, here's the tutorial given by the card's creator, Bonnie S.....there's even a video to watch as well.

BTW, the card is not as complicated as you think by looking at it.....the hardest part is getting the folds in the right direction.



Above is the view of my card closed, and below is 2 photos of the card open.




Stamp credits: geisha by Stamp-It, fan by Stonehouse Stamps (I think!), Cherry blossom and word stamp by Stampin' Up.

Papers: Blush by Basic Grey, the crimson metallic paper has a flocked design and is by Christina Re Designs - this paper is really lovely in real life!

Also used: Nestabilities Label 4 dies, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, holographic butterflies, Fiskars flower lace border punch and Kaiser rhinestones.

Hope you like my Oriental Tri-Shutter card.......please let me know what you think of it!

You did a beautiful job. I want to try this but the few that I have seen so far hard going to be hard to compete with. Your choice of the red on the paper is really pretty, and the stamps placement is beautiful. A wonderful piece of art.
