Hello My Fellow Crafters,
I want to share with you a handstamped birthday card that I just finished for my brother-in-law. I don’t know who ever came up with the in-law part, I feel that I gained more brothers and sisters once I got married (25 years ago) Anyway, let’s get back to the card 🙂
Giving this handstamped birthday card alot of though, I decided to use the triple time stamping technique. I didn’t take pictures of each step but here are the sizes for each layer.
White – three pieces cut into 2″ x 3 1/4″, 3″ x 4 1/4″ and 4″ x 5 1/4″
Bubble Gum Green – three pieces cut into 2 1/4″ x 3 1/2″, 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ and 5 1/2″
Then for the base of the card I used Midnight Muse cardstock cut 8 1/2″ x 6″
If you want to see all the steps you can reference post: Handstamped Greeting Card Using Triple Time Stamping Technique
For the inside of the card I wanted to bring some of the great colors from the outside in, so I cut some strips of the cardstock and added to just the one corner.
The best part about making handmade cards is that you can keep adding fun embellishments until you slip the card into the envelope and put it into the mailbox.
All the rubber stamps and cardstock are from my stash of Stampin’ Up supplies. What I love about all of the stamps, ink and cardstock is that they all coordinate perfectly.

Make It A Great Day and Don’t Forget To Leave Time To Craft!
