A great idea for those who love to stamp designs in different colours. The stamp sets come with three layers that you use individually to build up your design.
We used a Press To Impress stamping board. Secure your card to the board using the magnets. Lay the first stamp layer face down (uninked) onto the card where you want to stamp. The stamp piece has a corner missing - mark the card lightly at this point with a pencil so that you can line the other pieces up. Close the Perspex lid onto the stamp - this will then pick up the stamp. Open and ink; then close and stamp your image.
Lay the second stamp onto your stamped image, lining up your pencil mark with the missing corner. Close the lid to pick up the stamp. Ink and stamp.
Repeat this for the third layer - this will give you a wreath in three different colours.
Cut the wreath using the 3.5" stitched circle die.
Cut the scalloped circles measuring 4" and 2.5" from 45.3301 in sea blue card. Mount your stamped design onto the largest of these using foam pads and adhere centrally to the card blank. Cut the smaller of the scalloped circles into quarters and stick these to the corners.
Add blue gems to the corners and flowers as desired.
Finish with a die cut greeting in sea blue card
