Birthday girl

Yesterday was my lovely blogging friend Emma's birthday - I wanted to try a new fold and as a very talented card maker herself I thought she might like something a bit different:


This is a Tri Shutter card (instructions are here on SplitCoastStampers) made with an Old Olive base and Summer Picnic papers;


When folded closed it looks like this and fits into a regular A6 envie:


Glad you had a great day Emma! Thanks for visiting today!
