Create Dimension with an Easy Double-Stamping Technique from Yana Smakula

Smile! A well-deserved rest is right around the corner — the sprint to the holiday finish line is in full effect!

At first glance, this double-stamping effect from Yana mimics the appearance of a die-cut word but on closer examination (and after viewing her video!) you'll see she's actually employed an ingenious little stamping trick to create some depth for her greeting. Ready to see how she's done it?

Fantastic ! Such a beautiful card, must give these techniques a try for myself. Did like the first version but when you added those branches it really popped. Have a great start to New Year x

Can’t wait to try these techniques. Beautiful card. And thanks for diagnosing my hand pain. Never thought about my MISTI presses. It’ll be elbow down from now on.
