Mother’s Day Triple Layer Card

Standard

Hello everyone 🙂 Today has been a really wonderful day.  I wanted to take a moment and share the triple layer card I made from the technique video I shared a few weeks ago.   I made this card for my mum and she loved it 😀

For convenience the card layer dimensions are 3 squares comprising of 1 of each: 2″ square; 3″ square; and 4″ square.  In addition, you’ll need 3 squares of cardstock to act as the mat between each layer of white cardstock.  Mat dimensions are: 1 of each: 2 1/8″ square; 3 1/8″ square; and 4 1/8″ square.  Finally, the card base I used for this card was 5″ squared.

The technique video for this card can be found HERE (will open in new window) and the PDF download file of the tutorial from SplitCoastStampers is available when you click triple stamping.

The focal stamp on this card lends itself to blending and watercolour (or in this example.. the illusion of watercolour! lol)  I think it turned out quite well.  The small salutation was punched with the Petite Curly Label punch, the background using the decorative Label punch.  I punched the shape down several times until it was sized just right — both available from Stampin’ Up!

The butterfly I made for this card is “case”’d from my daughter, Shannon.  On the card she made for me, Shannon scored in 1/8″ intervals vertically across the butterfly punched, this makes the perfectly curved wings.  Shannon then attached it to another punched butterfly with a glue dot to create a beautifully dimensioned embellishment.  From there I added a little ribbon and some bling 🙂 viola!
