Frosty Friends Tri-Shutter Card

I made this cute tri-shutter card with my Stampin' Up! Frosty Friends stamp. It's one of my favorite Christmas stamps because it's just so adorable and fun to color! You can even cut the snowmen out and use them individually too! 

I love how this card turned out. Tri-shutter cards are actually one of my favorite kinds to make because they're so unique. The first time I saw one I thought that there was no way that I'd ever be able to make something so complicated but after reading and following this tutorial: Tri-Shutter Card Tutorial I realized that it was actually a lot easier than I thought. 

Here's what the card looks like when it's closed:

It's been a few years since I made this and I don't have any notes so I'll do my best to remember all the supplies that I used to make it:

First here are the measurements that I used for card stock: 

card stock base 5 1/2" x 12" 
snowmen background 2 1/2" x 3 7/8" 
snowmen 2 3/8" x 3 1/4"
sentiment background 2 3/8" x 3 7/8"
sentiment 2 1/4" x 3 3/4", 

Patterned paper panels:

two pieces 1 7/8" x 5 3/8" 
four pieces 1 3/8" x 1 7/8" 
two pieces 1 3/8" x 3 7/8" 
two pieces 1 7/8" x 2 3/8"

I stamped the snowmen with my Stampin' Up! Frosty Friends stamp in Stazon Jet Black ink. Then colored the images with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. Next I highlighted the snowman and created the snowflakes with Diamond Stickles glitter glue and allowed it to dry completely. Then I used a Fiskars medium lever snowflake punch for the green ones and an EK Success 1/8" Yellow Snowflake punch for the red ones, attached self-adhesive rhinestones to their centers, and attached them to the card with mini pop dots. I stamped the sentiment with a stamp from a Stampin' Up! More Merry Messages set in Garden Green ink.
