Inverted Triple Stamping Tutorial. . . . . . . .

Good morning folks. Hope this finds you well?

I know this post was supposed to be Luca's clock but I remembered some of you asked if I could do a tutorial on how I do the inverted triple stamped cards like the one above. If I didn't do it now, I'll probably forget.

Now, I must warn you, this is a photo heavy post. Also, I use Presscut Large Square dies to cut my layers,

Firstly, I cut a piece of card to the size that I want. I then draw pencil lines from corner to corner.

I then stamp my design . . . . . . .

After deciding the width of my layers, I then line up the corners of the dies with the pencil lines which gives you a precise lining up.

Close up of the corners lined up with the pencil lines.

When you run this through your cutting machine,you end up with this. . . . . . . .

I then place the largest piece onto a layer of the coloured card.

I then pop in the next size die down to create a pink edge.

And after cutting, you end up with this. . . . . . . . . . 

Repeat this with the other 2 layers using the card cut from the middle each time (No wastage on this blog)

Rub out the pencil marks then stack the layers on top of each other, starting with the bottom layer first.

You can pop this onto a card as is so its nice and flat for posting or foam pad each layer, going higher with each outside layer.

By foam padding it up, you get the effect of the original card . . . . . . . . 

Hope that all this makes sense and that you haven't fallen asleep lol!!!

That's it for now as I'm sure that I've bored you enough for one day, hahaha!!!

Back on Thursday for a new MAWTT Challenge.
