Triple Treat for Club

Hey there, friends!  Just poppin' in for a quick post to show you a holiday card we made this month at my monthly stamp clubs.  The triple stamping technique is a natural for this gorgeous Watercolor Winter stamp set from the Holiday Mini:
This is such a pretty technique and soooo easy.   I used a retro inspired color palette of Regal Rose, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and a little bit of Crumb Cake for the background flourish.
I wanted to do something a little different with the triple matting.  At the same time, I wanted to add some glitz but without a lot of bulk sooo...enter Champage Glimmer Paper!  The champagne hue of the mat really sets off the colors in the center panel.
Greetings of the Season provided the perfect sentiments for both the front and inside of the card.  I hope you've enjoyed my Triple Stamping card today--I would love to hear what you think.  Thanks for stopping by!

Nance this is gorgeousness! I just love the triple layer technique and it looks FABULOUS with a Christmas theme. I really like that it has pine branch combined with the flowers..so pretty. The glitter paper is a real surprise and I'll be trying that soon too. Thanks for the inspiration with this beauty.

I've seen this technique EVERYWHERE. And although I kind of like it, I had yet to see one that made me actually want to try the technique. Your card did it. It is fabulous! I love the splash of glimmer paper... perfect!

Trust me everyone, it's even lovelier in real life! I was very happy to be at my daughter's monthly card class while visiting and made this card as well.
Love,
