Sizzix Inspiration | Nautical Tri-Shutter Card by Anna-Karin Evaldsson

Hi everyone! Today I (Anna-Karin) have a tri-shutter card to share with you, made with new Life Made Simple Sizzix dies by Rachel Bright.

I love interactive and dimensional projects and I always wanted to do a tri-shutter card, but never got to it. With the Tri-Shutter Card Sizzix Thinlits die, you can make these cards really fast, no more measuring, cutting by hand and scoring, since the die does it all for you.  The set also comes with an additional 9 dies; labels, flowers, a butterfly, leaves and two lovely words, use them with the tri-shutter card, or for something else. I also used the Nautical and Calendar sets by Rachel Bright. The papers are Graphic 45's Come Away With Me collection.

The card looks like this from above. I die cut the card base from cream cardstock first and then a second time from patterned paper. The Sizzix Thinlits dies work best together with the Magnetic Platform. Use this sandwich when you die cut: Magnetic Platform, Cutting Pad, paper, die facing down, second Cutting Pad. If you struggle to get a clear cut with some of the detailed dies, place a piece of wax paper between the paper and the die, that almost always does the trick.

The anchors were die cut from cream cardstock and I inked one with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. All the edges of the card were inked with the same ink.

This die comes from the Calendar Sizzix Thinlits die set and I placed a piece of mica behind it.

The label was die cut from a larger sentiment panel on the patterned paper. The labels that come with the Tri-Shutter set have great shapes and you can layer them together to create thin label frames.

Look at your patterned papers and see if you can't die cut just sections out of it, for example, to create your own patterned labels.

On the longer piece in the center of the card I placed a label that had also been die cut with one of the Calendar dies. A tiny piece was cut off at the top of the label, by another month on the die, but I simply covered it up with a leaf.

I love this light house die from the Nautical Sizzix Thinlits die set, it will work great with any nautical themed project. It was die cut from two patterned papers and I only used a small part of the pink one. Behind the window there is a small piece of mica.

From the other side the card looks like this. It will look great displayed in the home of the recipient. Children will love these cards too, my son immediately asked to have this card in his room.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my post and I will see you again in just a few days.

Happy crafting

Anna-Karin
