I tried a triple time stamped card and I think I did it correctly. At any rate it was a challenge for a bit but I think I finally nailed it. It is good to try new things I guess. I think I had done a triple time stamped card once before so I guess it is not completely new to me.
For my panels I had a set of A2 size dies from Cheery Lynn Designs which had graduating panel sizes and they worked wonderfully. The smallest panel was done in white and then I had the next size panel in the navy. I followed up with the third size larger panel in white and again the next panel in the navy. I repeated the next size panel in white and that in turn was added to the base card.
All the white panels I lined up with equal margins and applied a tiny bit of adhesive to the back to hold them together. Once they were aligned up, I then stamped my design as if it were a single layer panel. When they were taken apart, I then glued them to the darker panel and was careful to try and align them in sync.
For my color choices I used navy, denim blue and turquoise. I was inspired by the colors of the gems I had received recently in a prize package so I decided they would work well together. As you can see the colors in the jewels line in the center do match quite well.
The fleur di lis images are from the Gina K. Designs set called Fleur Di Lis and is illustrated by Beth Silaika. Not only are the fleur di lis images from that set but the sentiment is as well. After assembling all the layers together, I then added the jewels and the ribbon. Since I used a navy/white duplex card stock for my card there was no need to line the inside with white.
My plans are to use this as a graduation card but I think it is a design that would work for many special occasions. I also think the fleur di lis images work for both a feminine or masculine card. This particular one will be for a young man.
