Telescoping Technique

I saw some cards on display at a craft store a couple of years ago.  I was so impressed and I wanted to learn how to do it.  It looks hard but really is not, especially with Stampin Up framelits and coordinating stamps.  The stamp on the card I used is retired - sadly.  I did not realize this when I make this card and video, but we do have the stamp set Apothecary Art and the Label Framelit.  I kept thinking I needed something on this card (maybe some designer paper or embossing folder) but I did want to emphasize the Telescoping Technique.

I used: 

  • Crumb Cake 4 1/2 x 11 - scored at 5 1/2
  • Marina Mist 4 5/16 x 4 1/8
  • Used Adorning Accents Edgelits on the bottom of the Marina Mist and Corner punch on the top.
  • Musical Notes Wheel for the background on the large heart with sponging using Crumb Cake ink to distress it.
  • Distressed around the edges of the entire card using Crumb Cake.
  • Stamped Happiest Birthday with Soft Suede.
