Angels Landing Wild Card Wednesday!


This is actually my first tri-fold shutter card! For this week's Design Team challenge, Judi is allowing us to make any kind of card. So I thought it was about time I tried a TriFold Shutter card! I used two different Angels Landing sets in this card, the most recent release HoHo Holidays and an older release, seasonal borders.

All the images are colored with colored pencils, blended with OMS and highlighted with Atyou Spica pens. I looked online for the colors of quails; not sure what color they are! So I tried to make these as close to lifelike as possible. So if you see a quail with a santa hat on, hopefully he or she looks like this!



Here is how the card looks closed, as it fits into a standard A2 envelope. Be sure to check out the other DT projects! I know they will be fabulous!

what a gorgeous card - how do you make it?

Tying the ribbons on the two side rectangles is a fun idea. I also like how you've combined those holly images with the quail. Everything works so well together. :)

I, too, made a card for the first time this week that was a different fold and I loved it! funny how we can sometimes be so hesitant to step outside that comfortable box....

but you truly rocked yours!!! it is just gorgeous!!! and of course Judi's images are as precious as can be! your quail are colored perfectly! we used to have lots of them around. you are just so talented! :)

This tri-fold is so cool! I really love the images you chose and the way you colored them up. The ribbon placement is fabulous too! I would have never guessed it was your first time with this fold. This card is Awesome!

Lauri, I love that you made a tri-shutter card too! Yours is wonderful! They look so cool but are really easy and impressive! I do love the idea of using them for Christmas cards. They make great display cards!!

great tri shutter card!! I'm a bit hesitant about making one after I made a never ending card a few months ago - it took forever! maybe over the summer when I'm off from school :)

definitely will impress the recipient!!
