Triple Time With Snowflake Soiree

Magnificent Monday Guest: Jennifer Timko!
Visit Jennifer's blog for card stock dimensions.

Stamps:  Snowflake Soiree, Teeny Tiny Wishes;
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler;
Ink:  Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake;
Accessories:  Big Shot, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Early Espresso 3-1/2" Tulle Ribbon, Brushed Bronze Button, Linen Thread, Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots

The key to the technique is the illusion that you have stamped multiple times and magically lined them up perfectly.  So I started with a base of Very Vanilla.  I cut two smaller rectangles of Very Vanilla and another larger rectangle of the same.  Attach them to the base using a repositionable glue since you will need to pull them back up and attach their "frames".  Once you have these in place, stamp your images.  You will need to apply a little extra pressure to the stamping to minimize the gap that will happen where the layers meet.  Now I like to use 1/8" borders (and did here) but a wider border is a bit more forgiving in the "magic" of this technique.  You may need to play with it a bit to find what works best for you.  After I stamped, I embossed the image using the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder.  I found that this helps in the reassembly part since you can use the embossing pattern as an additional guide.  Now, you carefully (take your time) pull the layers apart and then attach the back border panels (frames) to the layers.  The base of this card is Cherry Cobbler.  I folded a small piece of the Early Espresso 3-1/2" Tulle Ribbon in thirds and tied on a Brushed Bronze Button with some Linen Thread.  The middle panel is raised up on Dimensionals.  Finally, I added the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes (I inked only part of the stamp with a Stampin' Write Marker) and punched it out with the Jewelry Tag Punch and attached with Mini Glue Dots.
Thanks for sharing with us, Jennifer!
