Casing France Martin – Tri-Fold Shutter Card

CCBH w France Martin

I’m very excited to be taking part in the June Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest stamper France (“Frenchie”) Martin.  Frenchie is a prolific blogger with a big following and a big personality.  We are very grateful and excited that Frenchie has joined us in this hop.  We are all casing a past project from Frenchie’s blog and here’s the card I decided to case from 8 April 2016:



And here’s my card:

Tri-Fold Shutter Card-1

I adore the Detailed Floral Framelits and the Floral Boutique DSP.  Navy and white give a clean, crisp look that I love.

Tri-Fold Shutter Card-2

I loved the fun open and close of the shutter card and have never made one before so I gave it a go!  I’m pretty happy with the result.

Tri-Fold Shutter Card-3

I made one modification – I replaced the belly band with a magnetic closure.  And here’s a close-up of the card fully open:

Tri-Fold Shutter Card-4

If you’ve just started here, continue on the hop by clicking on the next person on the list after me – Gail Davidson.  Thanks for stopping by today and happy hopping!



If you live in Australia and you are looking for a demonstrator to purchase from or join up with I would love to look after you.

    Hi Gail I have just found your shutter card, it is awesome ! I notice that you have perfected the shape of the shutter, I had a look a Frenchies card and although it was a lovely card, I was not happy with the shape of the shutter, yours on the other hand is almost perfect ! Do you have any hints you can give me to achieve the same result as yours please ?

    What a great inspiration you are to take the new die and put this together. Your design did follow Frenchies but yours is so sophisticated! Thank you for sharing your art.
