Stamping multiple card stock layers is a hot trend in the paper crafting world. I created a card featuring the trend of stamping multiple card stock layers for an acquaintance who was diagnosed recently with breast cancer. I wanted to send her a card to let her know that I care and am praying for her. Therefore, I decided to use this technique of stamping multiple card stock layers for her card.
Everyone knows that the outcome of stamping multiple card stock layers would leave gaps in the stamped images, right? Additionally, the result will be less than the aspired goal, which is to have a pretty card. Agree?
Well, there is a method to use; however, you’ll still have gaps, but let’s see what we can do with those gaps. Follow these instructions to use this technique:
1. Cut pieces of Whisper White Card Stock according to this picture:
2. Layer the Whisper White Card Stock according to the following picture. You’ll need to use a temporary glue on the backside of the two top layers to prevent them from moving as you stamp the images.
3. Using a single inked stamp, randomly stamp the image around the multiple card stock layers.
4. Disassemble the three pieces of card stock.
5. Cut two pieces of colored card stock that match your ink (your choice) of a size to form mats for the top two layers.
6. Assemble the pieces and your gaps will appear as intended, and you’ll have a beautiful card, like this one.
