Modified Tri-Shutter Card

Experimenting with different card folds is one of my favorite things to do.  So when I came across this tutorial for a Modified Tri-Shutter Card, I immediately bookmarked it and put it on my 'To Try' list.

There are still 2 birthdays on my October calendar, for which I haven't made cards.  Since one of those birthdays is my daughter-in-law's, I decided to try the tutorial and make a special card for her Halloween birthday.

The cupcake with spider digi image is the current freebie from A Day for Daisies.  And I will be entering this card in their Challenge # 81 - Anything Halloween.

Other challenges into which I am entering this card include:
