Triple Stamping!

Hi folks,

Ian, here, from A Newbie Crafter with a project for you today.  I have always wanted to try Triple stamping but have always been nervous to do it.  I'm nervous to do a lot of things.  Haha.  Anyway, I knew that I wanted to create a quick and easy Valentine's Day card that was easy peasy.  Triple Stamping is the easiest!  Well, not the easiest, but it's fairly quick and easy to do!  Basically, I took a card  base at 4.25"x5.5" and did several layers.  The first layer was 4"x5.25".  The second layer was 3.25"x4.5".  The third layer was 3"x4.25".  The fourth layer was 2.25"x3.5", and the 5th layer was 2"x3.25".


I adhered the cream base cardstock to one another and stamped the flourish first.  This was done with grey ink.  Then I used the heart and stamped that in cranberry ink.  After that, I put all cream colored cardstock on the dark blue colored cardstock and wrapped the top 4 layers in bakers twine.  I added a button for a little extra.  


Here's a close up of the layers.  


On the inside, I adhered a 4"x5.25" piece of cream colored cardstock and stamped the same heart image on it.  I think it turned out cute!  Actually this card can be used for something besides Valentine's Day.  Maybe an anniversary, or special occasion.  Anyway, a super cute card, supe quick!

Craft on,
Ian
