Triple Time Mother's Day Card

Hello and Happy Mother's Day! Today I wanted to share another Mother's Day card I made last week. Triple Time cards are quick and easy. Just temporarily mat 3 graduated size pieces of white card stock one on top of the other, and stamp. Then take the 3 pieces apart and adhere to card stock mats, alternating the stamped piece with the mat. I made 3 or 4 of these with different stamps and papers in a short amount of time. Here's my butterfly version in pink.

The stamp I used is from Stampin' Up's Papillon Potpourri. I love those butterflies. I used one of the Hero Arts mid-tone Shadow Inks in Bubble Gum to randomly stamp the butterflies. The card stock I used is from Tim Holtz's Core'dinations Distress Collection in Spun Sugar. The ribbon is Bubble Gum polka dot from A Muse Studio. After all of the pieces were adhered together, my card was affixed to a Neenah card base. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and stamped with Slate Pigment Ink from A Muse Studio.  

Instructions for making triple time cards can be found on this Splitcoaststampers Tutorial. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's Day. This will be my second Mother's Day without my mom, so if you are lucky enough to still have your mother with you, give her an extra hug. Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day!
