Triple Layer Card

Are you looking for simple, yet, unique card ideas? Well, today I want to share one of those card ideas with all of you. It features a technique that involves stamping images over three different layers of cardstock and then matting out those images. This stamping and matting technique gives the images on your card depth and dimension.

While this is a very simple technique, it’s much easier to teach it to you through a hands on demonstration. So…I have put together a little video tutorial for you! This tutorial provides you will all of the measurements, tips and tricks you need to know to create a Triple Layer Card. Enjoy!
