[Video]How to Make a Tri-Shutter Card!

Have you all seen the fabulous tri-shutter card before?

If so, you know how time consuming it is to cut and score and fold this card - lots of measuring! I tried it once and was not happy doing it.

So, I created a FREE Cricut Design Space file (for the Cricut Explore machine) to save time and trouble! Whoop!  

Don't have an Explore - no worries - I link to a tutorial at the bottom!

First check out some close ups of the card:

Here is a top view, which may help you see how the folds work:
And here is the card closed - it measures 3-1/2" x 5":
Check out the video below to see how to make this card:

  1. Tried to download the file but it indicated I had to install the new Design Space plugin for the beta version and I've not wanted to switch to it yet so could you make this available to non-beta version?
    "Sunshine HoneyBee"

  2. I also do not want to yet use the beta. Does your file only work with that version?

  3. ladies use the beta, I have cut 2 beautiful cards with it, Joys and one from the make it now projects on design doesn't take away your present circuit design space, but shows you the new one its great!!!

  4. Thank you SO much for sharing the file!!!!!
