Climbing Orchid Triple Time Card

Today I am sharing a Climbing Orchid Triple Time card.  The Triple time technique is used with the Stampin’ Up! Climbing Orchid stamp set.  It is that time of year again.  Time to clean out older stamp sets to make room for new sets in the new catalog coming up in June!  So for the next few weeks I will showcase some of my favorite retiring sets and in-colors.

The inspiration for this card was one that I designed when this set was new and Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist were new Stampin’ Up! in-colors.  I remember when this set was new and I was playing with the set and building orchids.  By the way, Orchids are my favorite flower!  I actually have 2 orchid plants that are currently blooming!

Here are the details for the Triple Time Orchid card on the right.  The card base is a 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Pool Party cardstock scored at 4 1/4″.    Next is a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Berry Burst cardstock.  Then a 5″ x 3 3/4″ piece of whisper white cardstock.  

I used the new Layering Rectangle Framelits to cut the layers for the triple time technique.  One of the cool things about the Layering Rectangle framelits is they are stitched on both the inside and outside of the piece.  So each layer has the stitched look.

Start with the 3rd smallest rectangle and go up in size using the next 3 framelits in the Layering Rectangle Framelits set.  You will have 4 of the nested rectangles.   Cut the white layer with the smallest and 3rd of the 4 rectangles.  Cut your coordinating layer with the largest framelit and 2nd framelit.  

NOTE:  If you are stamping a random design – you can stamp your piece of whisper white before you cut.  Because I wanted to line the message up in the middle layer I chose to cut my whisper white first.

Stamp you message on the center panel with Lemon Lime Twist ink.  I also added 2 of the orchid leaves.   Now randomly stamp your image on the whisper white cardstock.   Attach each piece of the whisper white to it’s corresponding layer of Berry Burst cardstock.

Starting with the largest layer, put the card together.  Make sure to line up the design that you have stamped.  Then stamp the 2 medium orchid pieces and the flower center with Berry Burst ink on a scrap of whis

per white cardstock to make a 3D orchid for the front of the card.  Cut out the pieces with the corresponding framelit.  Attach to the front of the card with glue dots.  Then add a little pizazz to the center of the flower with a touch of Wink of Stella.

That’s it! Enjoy your beautiful orchid card!
