Stacked Card Tutorial for TLC338

Hello everyone!! It's my turn to host the TLC challenge on Splitcoast and my challenge to you is to make a Stacked Card!!!

First, you will need three layers, a small, medium, and large. You can use any shape you want.


After decorating the layers, stack the middle layer on the largest layer in the center and pierce a hole where you want the brad. This will allow the bottom layer to swing out. If your layers have words, make sure the finished card design (when all three layers are ligned up) has all the words and layers going the right way before you add your brad.


Now, stack the top layer on the middle layer in the center with the bottom layer turned out so you don't pierce through the bottom layer, too!! Again, make sure everything will go the right way when the layers are all turned out!!
Mine has the largest layer on top when it's turned out because I wanted the birthday sentiment on the top when closed. You will have to play with it before you add the brads so you get it the way you want. Add another piece of cardstock to the back of the large layer to cover up the brad back and use it to write your greeting.
Recipe: Stamps: Rubbernecker Hawaiian Vine #SKU-537-12, Butterflies are Free set #SKU-538
RN Friend to Friend Sentiment ##SKU 565-21 and Happy Birthday Square #SKU 565-19
, Paper: Vanilla, Prima Botanical dp, Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Accessories: Nestabilities, Brads, Blue Perfect Pearls for the flower centers, Copics

It looks beautiful too, thanks for the tutorial. I shall tell my friends about it, I know they'd like to have a go too.
