Commissioned card

I was asked by my mother-in-law Margaret, who is now living with us, to make a birthday card for her dear friend Mauveen who is celebrating her 80th birthday at the end of November. As it was a special occasion I wanted it to be a special card and so I decided to follow the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers for a Tri Fold Shutter Card, which I had never yet made but always wanted to give it a try. There is a great video on the bottom of the tutorial page to also follow.

Here is my completed card, with a closed and open view:

Cardstock/Paper: Bella Rose designer series paper, Wild Wasabi (In Color '08) textured 12x12 cardstock, Old Olive cardstock (forgot that the matching color for this dsp is really Kiwi Kiss, but Old Olive worked just as well)
Ink: Old Olive (for front greeting and to ink edges of Whisper White cardstock used to write a personal greeting), Versamark
Stamp set: Oval All (for greeting), Both Way Blossoms (inked with Stampin' Write Markers to stamp the rosebud), Baroque Motifs (flourish stamped with Versamark on the plain Old Olive pieces of cardstock
Accessories: Large Oval Punch and Scallop Oval Punch, Eyelet Border Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, Paper Piercer (I pierced some of the edges which may not be easily to see in the photos), Creative Memories gold rub-on numbers.

I really enjoyed making this card and will definately make some more in this style.
