Three Tiered Cards

God Bless the USA! 
This week at BettyBee's Buzz we had a tutorial by HoneyBee Judy on how to make three tiered slider cards, and I was contemplating my design, when really big things happened in the news.  At that time I also saw three long ignored stamps sitting by my desk, and I knew this was exactly what I wanted to create. This was one of those times when the card just sort of created itself :)

 The paper is the All American Collection by AdornIt.  The stamps are by Joanne Sharpe and Westwater Enterprises (both quite old).  I also used Cricut Plantain Schoolbook for the star; a circle punch; the Cuttlebug Stars folder; Elmer's Gold Leaf pen; ribbon by Offray; silver star stickers; glue dots and ATG.

Here is the same three tiered design in a Mother's Day card:

Here we have it fully opened to it's three tiered glory!

This shows the center section a little closer.  These papers are from Crafty Secrets. 

And here it is, all closed up, and ready for presentation. 
The paper is Bella Boulevard (I think!)  The flowers are from Wild Orchid, ribbon is Offray, and "Mom" is cut from the "Mommy" on the Cricut Heritage cartridge.

I have to admit that at first this tutorial was a bit confusing sounding, but there is a link to a video, and that helped a LOT!  But, once you try it, it gives you one of those AH, HA! moments, and it is not hard at all!  I do hope you will give these three tiered wonders a try, and link them up at BettyBee's Buzz

Making memories IS a wonderful thing to do... I hope you make some special memories with someone who has influenced you this week.  Happy Mother's Day if I don't get to make another post before then.  (Hubby is having knee replacement surgery, so I might be tied up). 

Happy crafting ~
