Trifold Shutter Cards

Here are a couple of trifold shutter cards I've done recently.

The first card uses the Vintage Vogue stamp set from the new Occasions Mini Catalog. This catalog has tons of great, new stuff in it! Most of the new sets are now available as clear mount sets (or as wood mount). The stamps are still the high quality rubber with foam backing that you are used to with Stampin' Up stamps. Instead of being mounted on wood, these stamps come unmounted. When you are ready to use one, stick the stamp on an acrylic block and stamp away. When you are done, remove the stamp from the block and return it to its case.

The acrylic blocks SU sells are as thick as the wood blocks, with rounded corners and grooves in the sides for easier handling. The new clear mounts are easy to use and give the same great results you are used to with the wood mount stamps.

In addition, the new clear mounts are cheaper and take up way less space. Each set comes in a case about the size of a DVD case. You can tell I love them. I was just going to upload a couple of cards and ended up writing three paragraphs about the new clear mounts.
