Happy Birthday - Day 4

The week is almost through.... hang in there!

Today's card is elegant...and we all have those friends that fit that bill.

This card uses the Triple Time Stamp technique.  Looks really complex and hard to accomplish but it is soooooo simple!

Two cardstock colors are used.    I used Basic Black and this becomes the shadow for the Whisper White.  Here are the measurements:

Basic Black
5.5" x 8.5", scored at 4.25"
4.5" x 3.25"
3.5 x 2.25"

Whisper White:
5.25" x 4"
4.25" x 3"
3.25" x 2"

Next you layer the two largest Whisper White pieces together and apply a small amount of removable adhesive to keep them in place.  Then you stamp the image randomly.  My example uses the Blooming with Kindness stamp set and Real Red ink.  The sentiment is stamped on the smallest Whisper White piece.  To get the two-toned color affect, I colored the sentiment with Real Red and the Basic Black markers.  After coloring, you "huff" to rehydrate the image and stamp away!

The flower is punched from Real Red with the Punch Pack.  The center is a Basic Rhinestone. 

Every time I see this card, I just have to say, "WOW!!!"

Hope you enjoyed this birthday card...stay tuned to tomorrow's favorite!

Many Blessings....Cathy
