Triple Layer Birthday Card

I meant to try this triple layer stamping technique for ages ever since the first time I saw someone do it. I wouldn’t say it’s an easy techinique, but it was definitely much easier than it appears. Just google triple layer stamping and you will get all information you need on how to do it. I was inspired by the PPA Sketch Challenge 143, so instead of placing each layer right in the centre of the next bigger layer, I shifted everything towards the top left hand corner.

  • The large flower image from the Elements of Style stamp set is so elegant that I think it was perfect for the triple layer stamping technique.

  • I first stamped a flower image using Pink Pirouette and then the Happy Birthday sentiment using Rich Razzleberry, and finally popped out the image using the 1-3/8″ Circle Punch.
  • The circle was matted to a 1-3/4″ scallop circle. I then pierced holes all around the scallop circle to give it an interesting final touch.
