Welcome to the 7th stop on the SU STARS August blog hop!  If you are hopping along in order you arrived here from Shelly Peck's blog.  If not, you can continue on to the next blog by clicking on the link at the end of this post.  You will also find a list of all participating blogs on the SU STARS home page.

Our theme this month is Fabulous Folds and one of my favorite cards made with a fabulous fold is a Tri Shutter card.  It can be a little tricky to cut and score correctly but well worth the effort.  The card below was made with the retired stamp sets Dream Garden, Embrace Life, and So Happy for You, Basic Black and River Rock card stock, and the new Fancy Fan letterpress plate.  Most of the stamped images were heat embossed with either black embossing powder or a powder I bought in a local craft store called Red Dragon.  The first photo shows the front of the card.
And the second photo is a side view of the card opened.
To be entered into a random drawing for some blog candy, leave a comment or follow my blog.  The winner will be announced on Monday, August 22.  Come back that evening to find out if you were the winner!

The next stop on our hop is the blog of Janice Heighway.  Enjoy!
