Shadow Stamping

Here's my card for today. Taken with Teal is such a pretty color. I thought I'd use it to show the shades that it can create when you stamp it twice. The main image is attached with dimensionals to give it more of a framed look.

The card is a trifold. I cut the cardstock at 5 1/2" x 11" and scored it at 3" and at 7 1/4" to create the correct card size.

Recipe:
Cardstock: Taken with Teal, Very Vanilla, SU To the Nines Designer Paper, Chocolate Chip 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Round Tab punch, Ticket Corner punch.

I used the Mat Pack to create the paper piercing on the 2nd layer. The spray is also stamped in Close to Cocoa on the 2nd layer and then again in the stamped off Taken with Teal on Very Vanilla cardstock on the inside of the card.

Beautiful! I love this image, anyway, but shadow stamping it like this really emphasizes how pretty it is... I really like the angle-cut corners on your panel, too - such a nice touch!
