Baby Shower

Have seen some beautifully folded cards on the internet and decided to try a tri-shutter card. Found a fantastic tutorial here. It really was a lot easier than it looks! A friend was having a baby shower soon so I decided to make the card for her. Since I didn't know whether she is having a boy or girl I decided to make the card yellow and green - which fits in perfectly with Scrapbook Boutique's January Challenge where you need to make a project using yellow, green and white and their photo as inspiration (see challenge page).

Here are some pictures of my card:
