The first projects of The 12 Projects of Christmas series have been seriously amazing, but a little bit extra. This #4 is pretty sweet and super easy, and it's called Double Time Stamping. When you use the Double Time Stamping technique, you stamp two pieces of cardstock at once.
Here's how I did it.
First, I LIGHTLY adhered two pieces of Basic White cardstock together, one that was 4 1/2" x 3 1/4" and a smaller one that was 1 1/4" x 4 1/4".
Then I stamped my images where I wanted them, making sure to stamp over the edges of the overlapped pieces of cardstock.
I carefully removed the smaller piece of white cardstock from the larger one and adhered them both to colored cardstocks. The larger piece was layered to Parakeet Party cardstock measuring 4 3/4" x 3 1/2". The smaller piece was layered to Granny Apple Green measuring 1 1/2" x 4 1/4".
I then adhered both pieces into place on the card base, making sure the images line up with those colored layers in between.
I added a sentiment with the Trees for Sale stamp set in Granny Apple Green ink on one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies, and then, if you look closely, you'll see ornaments that I made for the one larger tree near the center of the card. Those ornaments are made using our new Pearlized Enamel Effects Basics.
These Enamel Effects take a number of hours to fully dry, and if you don't have time for them to dry, they'd be impossible to use on those last minute projects. However, if you squeeze dots of the glue/paint on a Silicone Craft Sheet and let them dry, they'll be ready to use any time. I adhered the white ones I had created in advance to the tree using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
