CRICUT: Tri-fold Shutter card cut file

Hi everyone,

Today I have a tri-fold shutter card cut file to share with you. But not just any old tri-fold!

I've used a template shared by Sandy Allnock. Many of you will know Sandy as the founder of Operation Write Home. If you're familiar with her blog you may have even seen the card below!

Sandy took the regular tri-fold shutter card and adapted it to make more room for writing a message. I love this version!

They are so easy to put together and so much fun to decorate! Thanks Sandy for allowing me to use your design for my cut file.

Sandy has a video showing how to fold and assemble the card so make sure you check it out!

Click the image below to go to her tutorial. 

Make sure you leave her some blog love while you're there!

It's an awesome version and I'm very grateful that she was happy for me to share it with you as a cut file!

Here's Sandy's gorgeous tri-fold card!

Here's my version partly decorated.... I kind of had "embellishment block" at this point but wanted to share the file with you, so here it is!

Here's the link to my Design Space file:

Cutting instructions:

Please note, my version is just under 11.5" wide. (Sandy's is 12" wide.)  That's because the Cricut can't cut any wider than 11.5" when using the standard 12" mat. 

For folding/assembly instructions check out Sandy Allnocks video here:

I hope you enjoy using the file!

Happy crafting!  ♥

Thank you for the tri fold shutter card cut file! I love this card, and you have made it so easy! I do have a question--while I will not share your file with anyone else, I would like to put a picture of the card I made on my personal blog--is that allowed? I will make a link to your blog.

Narelle said...

Yes of course you can post your card on your blog. ☺

And a link back to my blog (or my Facebook page) would be great. :)

So glad you liked the card.

Narelle ☺
