Graduation Tri-shutter Card

Here's another card that a friend requested...I seem to get a lot of last minute phone calls.  This call came on a Friday night, asking if I'd be able to have something by the time we met for lunch on Saturday...I love a challenge, so I said yes, of course.  This was my first tri-shutter card, and I used the tutorial found on Splitcoaststampers for cutting, scoring and folding the base.   

Deocrating the panels was as easy as measuring the paper and cutting.  I used the Cuttlebug to so some embossing on a few panels, and added some "doctor" cuts using my Cricut.  I know that I used Wild Card for some cuts, but can't remember what other cartridges I used...sorry. 

The rosette on the front panel was simply made by scoring a 1 1/2 by 12 inch strip of paper at 1/4 inch intervals.  Once scored, you fold it up accordian style and glue the ends together.  This will look kind of like a cupcake wrapper without a bottom.  Carefully push down on the inside and flatten it into a circular shape and secure it with some kind of adhesive.  I use a glue gun or a large glue dot.  I added the cap to the middle to hide the glue and secure the rosette.
