A modified shutter Thank you card

I created this card - a modified shutter card - for a swap on AFTCM.  I found the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and adjusted the measurements to accommodate an 8.5" x 5.5" piece of cardstock for the base - 2 1/8" for the large sections and just over an inch for the small sections.  I scored all the folds, cut out the two sections and trimmed decorative paper to fit the panels - the grungy plum for the three large sections and bright yellow for the four little sections.  I layered a piece of waxed fabric (3.5" square) over yellow and then onto plum cardstock and stitched all the way around incorporating two lengths of seam binding in the process using bright green thread.  After the stitching, I tied the seam binding pieces together using a double knot and added a colour printed greeting punched with the Modern Label punch (SU) using 3D foam tape.  I really love how it came together and the wonderful punch of colour provided by the yellow cardstock and decorative paper.  It is off to my partner in tomorrow's mail!!
