Tri Shutter Card with tutorial using Fall Frenzy Kit

*THIS card, instructions,card design & post was done by the Editor of the Creative Esacpe Papercrafting blog, also on WordPress: Ms. Bev Code.* She is very gifted & creative, as you can see! Bev, it’s so thoughtful of you to share instructions, pictures and tips & tricks with all of us! This will be fun for fussy cutters OR you could use a stamp & heat emboss little messages & images. (Remember all of those tiny words on stamps and stickers that have been so popular?) A lot of possibilities – my mind is racing now! Bev is also on other teams & does a lot of scrapbooking! This, is truly what Creative Escape Papercrafting is about: learning, sharing & hopefully making everyone inspired.

Hi.. It’s Bev here again. I am sharing my 3rd card for Creative Escape Papercrafting using the Fall Frenzy Kit. For this one I am using a tri shutter fold and adding all the trim papers and accents. (I am supplying an instruction sheet for you to follow to be able to make this card too)


This kit is packed with hand-picked goodies to enable you to have a fall card making frenzy.  It’s perfect for Thanksgiving cards but also has elements that you can use all year.
The kit contains:
1 “Forest Feast” Lawn Fawn stamp set featuring 14 images and 11 words/phrases (made in the USA)
1 “So Thankful for You” Lawn Fawn die, approx. 5.75″ long (made in the USA)
1 Echo Park “A Perfect Autumn” 12×12 Double Sided Paper 3″x4″ Journaling Cards (cut into 2 pieces for shipment) (made in the USA)

10 Minute Card Series

With Fall/Autumn:) as my UK friends say, heads into full swing, the calendar gets busy! SO I thought, some fast cards would be nice create! Sometimes, we just DON’T have as much time as we’d like to create cards. So, I’m doing a series on quick cards with hope that you’ll refer back to a few things… Go for some tried & true things like banners & utilize fun, double-sided paper to get to see that nice detail as you open the card. If possible, think of a color or activity the recipient enjoys and you can hit the ground running! Yes, this card was for a young male but I find it more difficult to make cards for the guys! So, to give to an adult, I’d simply change the card starter interior card, add a couple more stars or baker’s twine and you could also do positive/negative die cutting on the banners with the stars or “Happy Birthday” for a twist. More Quick Cards are coming, I promise! AFTER HALLOWEEN: CHRISTMAS card series begins! YES! 🙂

Being different by CHOICE! Plus, a HINT

It’s time!!! A look at “Fall Frenzy” is coming to YouTube soon! A LOT of thought goes into satisfying potential Creative Escape customers: brainstorming, practicality, FUN & a thing called a budget are always being considered. “Doing more for Less” is the goal. Creative Escape believes you can absolutely enjoy creating on a budget & we love that at! Paper crafting isn’t always the cheapest hobby! The Design Team is fantastic: Annie, Dawn, LeeAnn & Karen: THANK YOU! (You will see more from all of us in the near future on YouTube, and on: under “creations”. Much more to come on that soon & info about them!

     Creative Escape Papercrafting is intentionally different than other companies because it’s not just about profit for them… Although, selling kits allows them to operate – each month they have a charity they donate a portion of their profits to! Fall is a time for being grateful, so a food pantry/shelter was chosen. If you add anything on, such as exclusive woodgrain papers, extra dies, etc., a portion of the profits goes to help those effected by natural disasters in the U.S. – you’re in our thoughts and prayers!
