VCMP #3 - Triple Die Cutting
Like most of us, I have seen the triple stamping technique before but never tried it. As Seongsook says, it uses a lot of cardstock and comes out very thick. Her technique is to use dies to cut the layers so you only use one piece of cardstock.
Since I didn't have the dies, I decided to be clever and cut them on my Silhouette. Setting up the files was easy. Figuring out the dimensions was harder. Actually cutting them took some work since I am a newbie and still figuring out all the different settings for each type of paper/cardstock.
Hopefully you can't tell that my patterned paper has two cuts in it. By the time I was done, I had a too small set and a correct size but with cuts set. I made cards with both since I didn't want to waste. If anyone wants the dimensions I used and/or my method, just leave a comment below.
Products - all from my stash and I have no idea who made any of them
