Men's Stampin'Up Tri Shutter Card


I am loving my new toys and stamps, it's really helping me to attempt a few new things. With my new 
Simply Scored board, I thought I'd try a tri-shutter card. How easy was it to make the base- 
I was a bit daunted at first but it was really simple.
I followed the instructions HERE

It;s still a bit bare, I need to personalise it with a name and age.


I used my "old faithful" SU Clockworks with a combination of blue and green Stampin' Write Markers to build up a background, then overstamped the gorgeous SU Postage Due image over the top. I also used SU Meauring Stick and Travel Journal stamps.


Same background technique, and a few little ticket embellies from SU That's the Ticket set.
Now I decided to add the flourish from SU Everything Eleanor after I had already stuck on the tickets so at first I was a bit unsure about lining it up...then I thought I'd use my Stamp-a-ma-jig....super cool. It made it so easy to position the flourish exactly where I wanted it!


I am no stamper, even the most basic of techniques put me out of my comfort zone but here I also had a little go at masking, to create a gap around the phone box image. Oh, such fun. 



This took me most of the afternoon, but I had fun playing.
