Triple Stamping and an Embossing Folder.

This is my most recent Triple stamped card, and includes the use of an Embossing Folder.
 It's also the first You Tube video I've managed on this that I'm happy with!

The card base is, according to the package, a 7"x7", however, that measurement applies to the envelope, on square cards, I've found. The actual card base is 6 3/4" square, and that holds true for all the sizes, so something to bear in mind when you are cutting layers to fit any of them.

I cut the layers- stamping and matting, at the start.
 The sizes for this are:
Matt layers:
 Stamping layers:
5 3/4 square
4 3/4 square
3 3/4 square and
2 3/4 square.

I find it easiest to attach the stamping layers together using some temporary tape runner, which stops them moving about.
 The Embossing folder is by Darice, and is called Butterfly Corner.
 As you will see in the video, I have cut along the top of the folder, and added hinges at the side with masking tape. This means I now have full choice on where, and what orientation I use the folder in, and also I'm not limited by the size of cardstock I can use in it.
 The stamps used are from Card-io,
 Greenery 1, for the corner leafy branch,
Plentiful Pansies,
Summer Wreath, for the little leafy branch & the Butterfly,
 Dragonfly Garden for the Blue flowerhead, and
Summer Meadow for the Orange flower.
 All inks were original Versafines.
So here is my video of the process. I hope you enjoy.😊

Always have loved these triple layered cards, and have yet to get the courage to attempt one. TFS the video too. This is just such a lovely card, and I really like the way you've combined the floral pattern with the embossing too. Made quite a stunning design. TFS

This is a beautiful card and I really enjoyed the video. IT was so nice to hear your lovely accent...I felt as though I was in the room watching your demonstration of the quadruple stamped and embossed card.
