Triple stamped card with distressed leaves...

This card I made today was inspired by the triple time stamping technique. And I got the idea for the leaves from a tutorial I had seen about flowers... let Me explain the leaves first. I cut them all using the CTMH artiste cricut cartridge,and then inked them to add dimension. Then I took one of our spray pens,filled it with water,and sprayed each one. Crushed each leaf in My hand,and then unfolded them and shaped as I liked. I am Really happy with the result! The card,was something I had seen awhile back,called triple time stamping. What I did was cut a mat at 5x5,same size as the card,and the base at 4&3/4x4&3/4. Next mat 4x4, base 3&3/4 by 3&3/4,and finally the last mat was 3x3,base 2&3/4 by 2&3/4. line up base pieces(You can use a small bit of adhesive,I used tombow,to keep from slipping) Then take Your stamp,and stamp over all 3. It will most likely leave a small gap between papers which is ideal! Then glue all together,and voila! I thought it needed more,so after adding a leaf and a button,I used some of the CTMH almond glitter glitz,which really brought it all together! Thanks for reading!! Here are a couple more up close and personal pics!!
