Thursday Triple Time Tropical Stamping... with Tutorial

Haven't done one of these Triple Time Stamped (aka Triple Layer or Triple Time or just Triple Stamped) cards for years!! But seemed like the right time... with the right stamp set, Tropical Chic! Aided and abetted again by Friendly Expressions

Though I have done a couple of things slightly differently this time around... as...

(1) I have used different colour mats/card base... which adds variety and is a bit more subtle than using just the one colour for all the layers... So the card base and inner mat are in Soft Sea Foam... and the middle mat is in Lemon Lime Twist...
(2) I have embossed the three stamped panels with the wonderful Subtle embossing folder to add texture... which immediately makes the finished card look and feel more luxury! Though it is impossible for you to see this... so just trust me on this point!!!

I embossed all 3 whilst they were still temporarily adhered... very quick and simple that way! But do note that they do then stick together quite well (even with the temporary glue!)... so you do need to take more care separating the layers before adhering to the cardstock panels...
Stamping in Soft Sea Foam, Lemon Lime Twist and Granny Apple Green... What a gorgeous selection of greens...
