Picture step by step directions for Funfold Trifold Shutter Card

I am a visual learner and so pictures are worth a thousand words to me.  Everyone learns differently and some prefer written directions.  My step by step tutorial for this funfold trifold shutter card will be a little of both.

Shutter Fold Birthday Card - Cool Treats Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 2

The card base is Berry Burst and the patterned paper is from the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper one of the New In Colors.  I used the Cool Treats stamp set and Frozen Treats Framelits to create today's card.
