Tri Shutter Card - Live your Dream

Hope you all had a great weekend! It was my first weekend with no coughing and I'm so thankful.
A friend commissioned a card for someone very special so I thought I'd go back to SCS and look for a technique I hadn't tried yet. This is a Tri -Shutter Card. The directions can be found here on craftiblog's site. The gallery on SCS is here for TLC221.
Getting the dimensions right for the first panel proved a bit of a challenge in itself, I did not say any bad words although I sure was tempted to!! Once that was done though, the rest was easy. The card folds to fit into a regular A2 envelope. If you haven't tried this technique yet, I encourage you to give it a go.
Here's a close up of the flower on the front. This is from Papertrey's 2008 Anniversary set that I finally received. I think mine got lost in the mail or something. I stamped the image 4X then popped each layer up on a dimensional after giving each layer a good coat of Crystal Effects.

This is a view from the top. Aren't those folds cool? I distressed most of the edges and clear embossed the sentiments. Thanks so much for stopping by...your comments are always appreciated.
