Colorful Tri-Shutter Card

My card today is full of bright sunny colors -- and lots of folds!   The Score-Pal "More Than One Score" challenge for May is to use your favorite color combination.  I'm not sure I have a favorite combination (there are so many good ones), but orange is one of my favorite colors.  Yellow, orange, and lime green make a "happy-looking" combination, so that's what I chose.   I used a die/stamp set and several other dies from CottageCutz.

Supplies used on today's card are:

Yellow cardstock - 12 x 5 1/2"
Lime green for the mats
Patterned paper for the panels
Scraps of orange and black for the sentiment and butterfly
Copic markers
Foam pop dots
CottageCutz dies - Marigolds - October (stamp/die set), Happy, Birthday, Double-stitched Ovals, Spring Butterfly 1

Cut the yellow cardstock to 12" x 5 1/2" and score on the 2", 4", 8", and 10" marks.

Place the panel in your paper cutter with the long edge at the 1 1/" mark.  Cut a slit from the 2" scoreline to the 10" scoreline.  Rotate 180 degrees and cut the same way on the other side.

Fold on the scorelines as shown in the photo.

I used the card base and traced around the end T-shape section and cut a template.  I then cut 1/16" around the edge to make a template for the mat piece, and again another 1/16" to make a template for the patterned paper piece.

Cut the mat and patterned paper pieces as follows:

Lime green - 4 pieces 1 3/8" x 1 7/8", 2 pieces 1 3/8" x 3 7/8", 1 piece 2 3/8" x 3 7/8", and one piece using the larger of the two T-shaped templates.

Patterned paper - 4 pieces 1 1/4" x 1 3/4", 2 pieces 1 1/4" x 3 3/4", 1 piece 2 1/4" x 3 3/4", one piece using the smaller of the two T-shaped templates.

Layer and adhere the patterned paper to the lime green pieces.  Adhere to the card base.

Stamp and color the marigolds onto white cardstock and then cut all the die-cut pieces.

Apply the die-cut pieces to your card, and you're finished.

This is such a fun card to make.  I hope you'll give it a try.
