Tri shutter cards

This is my 2nd attempt at making a tri shutter card. I made this card for my friend's daughter who had a baby boy in August. The tri shutter card looks hard but it is very easy to make. I used a baby boy stamp set as well as some baby boy embellishments that I bought at Michaels. I made the bow with my bow easy. I really like the bow easy and have a feeling I will be using it a lot!

Here is another view:

The 1st tri shutter card I made was supposed to be a Birthday card for my daughter but I was not all that happy with it so will not be posting a picture of it.

I also made a Christmas card:

I embossed this card with the Christmas tree cuttlebug folder in my cuttlebug and added some clear rhinestones to give it some bling. The paper I used is a shiny navy blue metallic card stock. The white paper layer also has a bit of a shiny metallic look to it. I am very pleased at how well this card turned out even though it is not a traditional green and or red card.

Thanks for stopping by!
