Tri-fold Shutter Card

I love the look of an unusually-folded card. I fell in love with tri-fold shutter cards a year ago, and it is still one of my favorite cards to make and amaze. There are numerous tutorials on YouTube and SCS, and if you have a ScorPal, it makes creating this card a piece of cake!
I used my ScorPal and scored a 5.5x12" piece of cardstock at 2, 4, 8 and 10" horizontally, and scored then cut vertically at 2" and 3.5" 2" from each end. After folding my score lines, I then embellished the card. That mirror butterfly really makes the card shine, I think! I gave it to my hubby and he loved it! Mission accomplished!!
My card is entered in the Crafty Catz Weekly CHallenge, which asks for Fancy Folds. I think this qualifies! They're offering a gift voucher to The Paper Shelter for one randomly selected winner, so check them out!
