Triple-Layer Stamping

I have been seeing some beautiful cards online using this technique and just had to try it myself! Isn't it a stunning look?
Here is how it is done:
Very Vanilla card stock is cut at 2" x 3-1/4", 3" x 4-1/4", 4" x 5-1/4"
Early Espresso card stock is cut at 2-1/4" x 3-1/2", 3-1/4" x 4-1/2" and 5-1/4" x 8-1/2"
Stack the Very Vanilla card stock with the smallest piece on top. (a teeny, tiny bit of adhesive can be used to hold them together)
Stamp the flourish design from the Everything Eleanor stamp set with Crumb Cake ink randomly on the stacked VV card stock.
Stamp the flower image in Early Espresso ink.
Peel the stamped, stacked Very Vanilla pieces apart and layer them on the Early Espresso card stock pieces. Fold the 5-1/4" x 8-1/2" EE card stock to form the base of the card.
Embellish and viola!

I am now scheduling classes into the Fall. Call me soon to get a date to stamp with your friends!

Love love love this technique. Thank you for sharing how to do it. I've seen it online and couldn't figure it out. I thought it was patterned paper. I'll have to try this out.
