Triple Time Technique

I fell in love with this elegant yet quick card.
So much so that I want to share with you how to make your own:

Triple Time Technique
Supplies:  2" by 3 1/4" panel, 3" by 4 1/4" panel, 4" by 5 1/4" panel.
Above panels will be your lighter toned papers and below are measurements for the
darker mats for each:
2 1/4" by 3 1/2" mat, 3 1/4" by 4 1/2" mat, base of 8 1/2" by 5 1/2".
The smallest combo is the 2" by 3 1/4" paired with the 2 1/4" by 3 1/2" mat.
Next is the medium 3" by 4 1/4" panel paired with the 3 1/4" by 4 1/2" mat.
Finally the 4" by 5 1/4" panel goes over the base of 8 1/2" by 5 1/2".

When you have them all cut to size sort your panels out from the mats and adhere a small
piece of low-tack double-stick tape on the backs to put the 3 panels together without the mats.
Stamp your images all over the 3 panels allowing them to "leak over".  Don't worry if  edges seem to be missing as they will be covered later.
Separate the panels and pair the small and medium with their mats, then add fibers if you want before
putting pop dots on the largest panel and adhering so images line up with each other.

I added some hand-made bakers twine as I did not have the color I wanted to use.  I wrapped some around a ruler and ran a Copic marker along it.
I used stamps by Annette Watkins, Creative Vision, Penny Black and PSX.

You could do other shapes instead of rectangles I think.

This looks very nice. I love the idea of making your own bakers twine as colors seem to be very limited in my neck of the woods!
