Triple Time Stamping Wonderfall

This triple time stamping technique is so very fun and not as complicated as it looks.  Cut your card pieces as follows:

5 1/2  x 8 1/2 (card base, darker layers)
4 1/2 x 3 1/4
3 1/2  x 2 1/4

For the lighter layers, on which you will stamp, cut the pieces as follows:
5 1/4 x 4
4 1/4  x 3
3 1/4  x 2

Next, using Dotto re-positionable adhesive, or a very little dab of snail, adhere all 3 lighter layers together.  You will be taking these apart, so you don't want them to stick together permanently.  Now you are ready to stamp.  I recommend starting with the biggest stamps in the center and working your way out to the edges with the progressively smaller stamps.  Do not worry too much about the ink not being perfect where the edges overlap.  Most of that will be covered by the darker layers. 

When you are finished stamping, gently pull apart your layers.  Adhere the largest, bottom layer to the card front.  If you want to attach ribbon around the next two layers as I have done, be sure not to adhere them to the card yet.  Instead, layer them together, then wrap your ribbon around the back.  Now attach it to the rest of the card and embellish as desired.
