Fun Tri-Shutter Card Party Invitation – 60-Second Fold of the Week
Sometimes, you just need a fun little idea—and this week, we have one for you! Gold Strike Resort, part of the MGM Resort Properties, was having a "Hat & Taco Party" and sweepstakes for a special group of guests. Designer Trevor Sowers of Beau Rivage Advertising Department created a clever spin on the Tri-Shutter Card format—a dimensional format that uses long, parallel diecuts.
Produced by our friends at Hederman Brothers in Ridgeland, Mississippi, this fun, short-run digital piece is a refreshing spin on the party invitation. Enjoy!
