Cowgirl Tri-Fold Shutter Card+ Tutorial

It is once again Tuesday and the best part is that there is a new challenge over at TOP TIP TUESDAY! This week The Challenge - More than 1 fold 

To get your inspiration going I have done a tutorial on the Tri-Fold Shutter card. So here it goes:
Start out with
 1 - 6x12 Cardstock
1 - 6x12 double sided designer paper (or two cordinating papers)

Score the cardstock at 2",4",8" and 10"
Then measure 1½ inch from top and bottom and cut from the first score to the last score line.
Next fold mountain valley style.
I like starting in the second score line on the middle panel and folding it mountain style.

The top and bottom panels will get folded mountain style starting on the first score line. It should look like this bottom picture.
Next you cut your DP ¼ inch smaller than each panel.
I like alternating my paper as follows. You will need:

(2)1 ¾ x 5 ¾,   (2) 3 ¾ x 1 ¼,  (2) 1 ¾ x 2 ¾,  (4) 1 ¾ x 1 ¼, (1)  3 ¾ x 2 ¾.
I then inked the edges with Distress Ink Vintage Photo and glued down the pieces.
This is what it looks like all put together.
Then you will be ready to add a sentiment or image and really make it your own creation. 
Here is a bit of a close-up of cowgirl Tilda; aint she just so so cute?!
I have used a die cut I had been hoarding for a long long time!

This is what they look like closed.(Kinda closed)
This is a really easy card to do; once you have done it once then you can really make them in a jiffy!
