Birthday Card For A Tri-Fold Shutter Card (Using Hunkydory Kinetic Card Kit)

Hi to all of you wonderful people out there in Blogland.  I hope you are having a fabulous 2014 so far.  I created my first card this year with a card kit I had purchased; just so I could try making this style of card.  I am glad I had it; because I needed a quick card for a friend's birthday and it worked out great.  

I have never purchased any card kits except those made by CTMH; so I wasn't sure if I would like it or not.  It was fairly easy; because all the pieces were already die cut for you.  Quick and easy. Very pretty too.  Another reason I bought it was because one of the cards is purple and another is pink. LOL!  I love everything purple and pink!  The pictures does not do this card justice at all.  It is a very pretty green color; but this picture is too light.  

I wanted to create one of these cards for quite a while; but I haven't had time.  So, I bought a card kit with four of these cards already precut; just to see how they looked.  I love this style of card and glad I bought this card kit.  It is very good when you need a quick card.  I created this one for my friend Sue.   Now I need to try to create one on my own.  LOL!

This paper is a beautiful soft green and silver with sparkles; which does not appear that way here.  Sorry.  I tried several times and I think the type of paper makes the light hit it; which then causes it to look lighter.

Supplies I used in creating this card:

Deco Kinetic Card Kit by Hunkydory Crafts - Decadent Days & Glamorous Nights
Ribbon - Offray
Foam Tape

  22. fantastic card! and so pretty with the tought of pink.
    thank you for joining at lacy sunshine challenge.

  23. This is so my type of card both for the colours and the style. One of my resolutions this year is to create as many new folds for cards as possible and new techniques. I have tried cutting this card once before but when I closed it up it buckled. I think I was using card that was too thin so will be giving this one another go . Hugs Mrs A.

  24. WOW this is awesome Gloria! Love the fancy fold and choice of paper/image! Thanks so much for joining us at The Sisterhood’s ‘Out with the Old, In with the New’ challenge and please come back again soon!
