Beautiful Christmas Cards Without Using a Holiday Stamp Set

I love stamp sets that can be used year round, don’t you? I’m going to show you how to make beautiful Christmas cards without using a traditional holiday stamp set! In fact, the Forever Ferns Stamp set is perfect for just about any occasion or season. The card I am demonstrating is simply stamping with layers. The only supplies we need are Stamps, Ink and Paper. The card will have three layers and the design carries through and aligns with each layer. The technique is known as Triple Time Stamping.

Triple Time Stamping is stamping an image across three layers of Basic White Cardstock at the same time. Gaps will be noticeable on the second and third layers, but these will disappear once the matting is added to each layer.
