Fun with a Triple Layer Card!

Hi There!  Kendra here today with a tutorial on how to make a Triple Layer Card.  

I've seen a few of these on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one with one of my favorite images from The Rubber Cafe', the Extra Large Daisy.  

So this is how you make the card.  

First cut 3 pieces of light cardstock ~ 2" x 3 1/4"; 3" x 4 1/4"; and 4" x 5 1/4".
Then gather your image(s) and coordinating inks.

Next, using a removable adhesive, attach your layers from largest to smallest.  You want to use a small amount of adhesive to attach them so they don't move while you are stamping.

Next, ink your stamp.  I used 3 orange & gold shades of Memento Dew Drops.  I used Potter's Clay in the center of the Extra Large Daisy image, then Tangelo for the flower and Morroco for the edges of the flower petals.

Stamp the image on the stacked cardstock.

Next I used the background image from the Vintage Treasures stamp set randomly stamping to fill in all the white space around my daisy as background fill for the card.

When you stamp several layers of cardstock at the same time, there will be a gap in the stamped image.  So you add a coordinating mat under each stamped layer.

I added a tag using the Fabulous Phrases stamp set and tucked it with a matching button tied with bakers twine.
