June Stamp-a-Stack

I can't take credit for this design; I totally CaSed the idea for these cards from the very clever Connie Stewart.

It's a really clever idea. I started with 4 pieces of cardstock slightly smaller than a cardfront (10 x 14.3cm) in Not Quite Navy, Cajun Craze, More Mustard and Soft Suede. I stamped each one with a different stamp from Artistic Etchings, using the same colour ink as the cardstock I was stamping on. Then I ran each one through a different embossing folder. The next step is to cut each one up into pieces. It doesn't really matter how you cut them up, as long as all 4 are cut exactly the same. Then just rearrange the pieces so that there is one of each colour on the Crumb Cake card base. Voila!
The sentiments are from Friendly Phrases, and I also stamped the flourish from Artistic Etchings under each phrase in Crumb Cake ink, so it didn't look quite so empty.
Don't they make awesome masculine cards? Thanks Connie for sharing your brilliant idea!
