Beautiful Mother's Day card

Welcome friends! Today we are sharing a Tri-fold shutter card.
This Beautiful Mother's day card uses the Pink Paislee Hope Chest paper collection.

Special Occasions call for special cards so today I'd like to share with you how I made this card.
 Step 1 -
place 5 1/2" x 12" piece of cardstock horizontally on scor board and scor a 2",4",8",10".
Step 2 -
Place paper vertically in paper trimmer at 1 1/4 and cut from 2" scor line to 10" scor line.
Flip over and repeat on opposite site at same dimensions.
Step 3 -
Fold at scor lines to match picture above.
Step 4 -
Cut cardstock matting 1/8 smaller than card base sections:
2= 1  7/8  x  5  3/8
2= 2  7/8  x  1  7/8
2= 1  1/8  x  3  7/8
4= 1  1/8  x  1  7/8
1= 2  7/8  x  3  7/8 

Step 5 -
Cut coordinating pattern paper 1/8 smaller than cardstock matting sections:
2= 1  3/4  x  5  1/4
2= 2  3/4  x  1  3/4
2= 1  x  3  3/4
4= 1  x  1  3/4
1= 2  3/4  x  3  3/4
Step 6 -
adhere papers to card base using
adhesive of choice.
Step 7 -
From the Paper Goods selected die cut and mat onto cardstock and hand trim around edges to create a 1/16 border.
Using Tim Holtz Distress markers and water brush color in butterfly to match papers.

Here is a closer view of the colored butterfly which I covered with glossy accents once 
Step 8 -
Create a small cluster of flowers to accent lower left corner of paper goods die cut.
I like to use the rolled flower dies and spellbinder foliage dies.
