You know how sometimes, you see a card someone else has done and you just love it so much that you have to copy it almost exactly, detal for detail?   Well, that’s what happened with this lovely card.   I changed the color, but really almost nothing else from the original.  This technique is called Magic Snowflake – and the instructions for how to do it are on Julie Dinn’s Blog.  I loved this so much  that I did it for a shoebox swap.  Thanks Julie for sharing it with us!

I am so excited about this card!   I got in this swap at the last minute, when someone else had a conflict and I’m so glad I got the opportunity.  I’ve seen this called a number of different things, but most commonly called a Tri-fold shutter card. It was so easy to make and it makes such a striking card.

Here’s the card when it’s closed.

The tutorial I used to learn how to make this card can be found on The Craftiblog.   If you haven’t tried one of these cards yet, you really should.  You’ll be amazed at how they turn out!

One of the great things about going to convention is getting to actually meet some of the wonderful ladies I’ve been chatting online with.  Not only am I getting to meet them this week, I get to swap with them too!  Stampin’ Addicts is hosting a Meet & Greet on Friday night, and of course, we’ll be swapping to beat the band.   One of the swaps that I’m participating in is a Christmas Card swap.

Here’s my card for this swap . . .
