New Trifold Shutter Card

Hello Everyone,
It is getting closer to the celebration of the Fourth of July.  What are your plans: beach, cookout, fireworks, park, or just another lazy day lounging around? Whatever you choose, you are at liberty to do it.
When I made a Tri-Shutter Card last week, you will notice there is not a lot of room to write something personal unless you use the back of the card.  Today, I would like to show you one where there is a lot of room to write a decent message inside.
The materials are almost the same: ( refer back to Tri-Shutter Card on June 26, 2014).
Start with a 12 x 6 inch piece of cardstock placed on the scoreboard horizontally.
Score at 2 inch mark from top to 1 1/2 inch down  and from the 4 1/2 inch mark to bottom of card
Score at the 4 inch mark all the way from top to bottom of card.
Score at 6 inch mark from top to 1 1/2 inch down and from the 4 1/2 inch mark to bottom of card
Score at 8 inch mark from top to bottom of cardstock.
Use matting that is cut smaller than cardstock and dp (designer paper) cut smaller than your mat.
Use the sentiment of your choice.
Here is a look at the steps using pictures:


Card scored and folded. Notice the score line does not come all the way down on the 2 inch and 6 inch line.


Mat paper and designer paper


trial run of mat and designer paper before adhering with glue


finished card with sentiment and with room to write a decent message inside.
