Hello You - and Happy Birthday !

I saw a card using this technique on Pinterest and knew I just had to use it for an upcoming birthday !

I love how it turned out. 

You definitely need a stamp positioner such as the MISTI for this type of card.

I cut two pieces of card stock in Whisper White to the same size.   Then I fixed the first one in position in my MISTI and stamped a flower, building up the colour with my daubers until I was satisfied with the colour of the flower.  I then removed it and placed the other card into the MISTI stamping the flower in exactly the same place as the previous one, again building up the colour.   You have to do this with each individual element.   So, stamp a leaf on one layer, remove the layer replace with the other and stamp the leaf in exactly the same place.  So on, and so forth.

When you are happy with your two identical layers, you need to select a word die.   I chose the "Happy" die from my Hello You Thinlits dies.   I placed it across the centre of one of my layers and ran it through the Big Shot. 

Then I took the die cut word, put some glue on the reverse and then very carefully adhered the die cut in exactly the right place on the other layer, making sure that the stamped elements on the die cut word matched those beneath it.

It was a little time consuming, but I quickly became absorbed and I think that the effort really pays off.

Hope my recipient likes it.   Her birthday is on the first day of Spring - so I had better leg it down to the post office to make sure she receives it time.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Bye for now.

  2. Beautiful card. Thanks for sharing your technique. Must try it!

  3. Hi this is a stunning card. I think I need a Misti. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  4. Lovely card. There is an easier way to get that effect, especially for those without a Misti. Stamp your whole design. Die cut your word from your design. Die cut the word from some plain cardstock. Insert the plain word into the stamped design. Glue the stamped word on the top of the plain one.
