A-Caroling We Will Go

Cute Carolers, tri-shutter card. Designed by Grace Baxter

These happy little carolers are all decked out in their winter finest. At first glance you might think this card may be too difficult or time-consuming. Actually, it is neither!

What MAKES this card is the fabulous cardstock. You have to start with the best. I love The Winter Wonder Stack from DCWV. (No, they aren't paying me to say that.) The crisp stock is the perfect weight, and I can't even tell you how hard it was deciding which designs to use. They are all wonderful -- some smooth, some shiny or glittered.

Winter Frolic is the perfect cartridge to pair up with these papers. I usually search through my cartridges and choose cuts from a few different ones. But this time I stuck with just Winter Frolic. It was everything I needed!

Begin with a tri-shitter card. Directions are available on Youtube by many bloggers. I recommend testing the cuts on cheap plain paper if you've never done one of these before. But seriously, it's very easy. I like to add a personalized message, prepared on my computer and placed on the back of the card.
Happy Cardmaking!

  1. Hi Grace, thank you so much for yoru sweet comments and for becoming a follower of my blog. I've just been cruising through yours and it's just lovely. I especially love this tri-shutter card - reminded me that I haven't made one in a long time and wonder if I still have the directions lol. The followers part of the blog is not working at the moment, but I'll check back soon and become a follower too :)
