Tripling the fun for fall!

Hey everyone!

Fall is in FULL swing here in Alaska! With the colors quickly changing, I had it in me to make one a card using one of my favorite techniques. The triple layer card! I'm always skeptical when I start if it will come out, but it NEVER disappoints!

The measurements for this card are as follows:
Card base (A2) 4 1/2 x 5 1/4"
Layer 1 (stamped) 4 x 5 1/4"
Layer 2 (solid) 3 1/4 x 4 1/2"
Layer 3 (stamped) 3 x 4 1/4"
Layer 4 (Solid) 2 1/4 x 3 1/2"
Layer 5 (Stamped) 2 x 3 1/4"

Cut all of your cardstock and layer to keep everything organized. Using an removable adhesive, layer and position the white stamping layer together and adhere so that they won't move around while you're stamping. Choose your images and stamp the layers. You'll notice that along the edges where the paper layers, the image won't stamp clearly and thats okay, don't try and fix it! Once all of your stamping is done, carefully pull detach the stamped layers and assemble with the solid pieces. Then, starting at the base, assemble upward. Remember, if you're adding embellishments, such as ribbon, to measure and position before you are completely adhered together.

And thats it! Such a beautiful and relatively easy card to make. I find that this style of card is good for  those sets that have lots of bitty stamps in them, that you might not necessarily know what you're going to do with.

**Note, when tying ribbons, it helps to have tiny fingers to hold the ribbon in place. :)
