Trifold Shutter Card with Echo Park Paper

Well, I posted on Facebook yesterday that this card took me 5 hours to complete. It was 5 hours but there was lots of family activity mixed in there including dinner. I actually got a bit carried away with the embellishing of this card and that is what took me so long. The easiest part was my paper choice. I used Echo Park's Summer Days paper pack that I won in a blog hop. I am so excited about this paper and need to get my hands on the Holly Jolly Christmas collection. I used a variety of materials for this card including Jolee stickers, Ink It Up Stamp Pads, Stampin Up ink pads, stamps, brads and Markers and other miscellaneous stamps. I am so impressed with how it turned out but it is very labor intensive. I can see where you may want to make a load of these at one time. I have two more new projects that I want to work on but not a whole lot of ambition today. Isn't Sunday supposed to be a day of rest . For now I will leave you with some pics of the card I made and the two sites I used for guidance:
