Here are three examples of cards using the Triple Time Stamping Technique:
This first one is a great card for Christmas. It is also the one made in the directions below.
Of course, you can always use birthday cards. This technique will allow you to make any style for any person. Simply swap out the colors and images to fit your theme! :-)
This third example is a sympathy card. Comforting in it's beauty, don't you think? :-)
And now, for the directions:
The white paper is the area you will place your images, and the dark blue will be your mat and card base.
Starting with the smallest first cut your paper at:
2" x 3 1/4"........mat will be 2 1/4" x 3 1/2"
3" x 4 1/4"........mat will be 3 1/4" x 4 1/2"
4" x 5 1/4".........base card is 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
I have changed the color of the card from white to these pastels so you could see how to mount them together. Using just a small amount of adhesive and using your finger over it a couple of times to lessen the sticking power so when finished stamping you will be separating them easily.
You can now stamp your images. I started with a flourish and then added the snowflakes.
This is what your project looks like before you mat them.
And this is what they will look like after you mat them.
Mounting the first two top sections together you can now trim with ribbon or string etc.
Thanks for stopping by.....smiles.....Joanie
Beautiful! I really love the silver and blue with the white for this elegant Christmas card. :-)
