Black and White Tri-fold Shutter Card


I've seen a lot of these types of cards and thought I'd give it a try for my friend's birthday.  I thought this black and white designer series paper (retired from the holiday mini catalogue) would look elegant for this card along with my favorite green - Old Olive.  Most items on this card are retired, I'm afraid, but there are always substitutions out there to consider.


Notice the paper piercing, the distressed edge on the card front, and the use of the new Border Punch.

Supplies: Basic Grey CS, Basic Black CS, Old Olive CS, Night and Day Specialty Designer Series Paper (Retired), Ribbon Originals "Mistletoe" (Retired), Heart image from "Sketch It" stamp set (Retired, but I have a used one available for purchase), Friends image from a retired rub-on package (sorry, don't have the name of it), paper piercer and mat pack, Old Olive ink, cutter kit (for distressing paper edges), stampin' dimensionals, adhesive.
