Triple Layered Card

I saw these cards on-line just go to "Google Image" and type: "triple layered cards". You'll see lots of ideas.  

You will need to cut the following pieces:

Base (Colonial White) Layers: (one each)

a) 4-1/2" x 5-1/2"
b) 3-1/4" x 4-1/2" 
c) 2-1/4" x 3-1/2"

Base Colour (Olive) Layers: (one each)

a) 4" x 5-1/4" 
b) 3" x 4-1/4"
c) 2" x 3-1/4"

Step 1~ Layering
  • layer your Colonial White pieces with removable adhesive
Step 2 ~ Stamping
  •  start with the lightest colour.  Stamping randomly and off the corners.
  • stamp your second image with a medium colour, fill the blank spaces
  • stamp you largest and darkest image
  • add sentiment 
Step 3 ~ Matting
  • separate your stamped pieces
  • mat each one with a colour base
Step ~ Embellishment
  • before adhering your first mat add a piece of twine rolling it two to three time
  • add button or brad  
  • when layering match up your images.
