Ok, finally, “Failure to Launch” has launched and left the warmth of his/her nest. Since you can’t tell the sex for several weeks-when the colors come in-the new babes will be called “It”. Unless Sweet Hubby names them first!

     Today’s card was the 2nd card we made at stamp camp. This technique is sometimes called the Pyramid technique. I’m posting several pictures to show you some of the tips I taught at the class.

I placed my framelits like this to save paper!

Stack each layer and tack with little spots of snail on all 4 corners.
Randomly stamp flowers in different colors and add leaves in
Old Olive for contrast.

Use a sponge dauber to very lightly sponge edges with
Strawberry Slush.

Try to keep each layer in the same direction as opposed to
some being upside down.

Place dimensionals on all sides to give a 3-D look,
matching stamped pattern.
