TRC Triple Layer Birthday Card

Hello Rubber Cafe' Fans!  Kristine here with the first post using the August Creative Cafe' Kit of the Month, Gold-n-Glitz.  For today's Triple Layer Card I used the "Flower Bouquet" stamp set that comes with this months kit as well as the add on kit, "Laurels".



To cut out the black frames for today's card I die cut all three at one time with my Spellbinder dies as shown in the picture. You could cut them with a paper trimmer if you don't have these dies.



I die cut three white panels one size smaller than each of the black frames and layered them on top of each other.



Then I randomly stamp a flower image with Memento Tuxedo Black die ink.



I cut a flower out of a post it note and used it to mask the flowers when I stamped the leaves.



This is how it looked when I finished stamping.



And this is how it looked when I finished coloring it.  I used Copic Markers (YS91-YG95-YG99-R20-R21-R22-R24)

After coloring, I separated the three panels and backed each of them with a black frame.



I adhered a pink panel to a black card and then added the framed floral panels popping up each layer with 3D adhesive.  I tied ribbon around the card.  I dotted Scrap Happy glue randomly on the card and sprinkled gold glitter on the card as shown.



When the glue dried I shook off the excess glitter and added the sentiment panel.



Here is a view that shows the popped up layers a little better.



I'm not sure if the pictures do this card justice...it's really cool in real life!  I hope you enjoyed  today's tutorial.  Make sure you stop by often.  The rest of the design team is dreaming up lots more amazing inspiration for you!

What a gorgeous card! Can't wait to receive my kit this month! Can you tell me what Spellbinder's dies you used & the overall size of the card? Thinking of investing in some Spellbinder's matting dies & like what you used here.
