This is Jeanette's birthday card for this year. It is called triple stamping. The idea behind it is you cut three white panels of card stock, each about 1/2" to 3/4" smaller than the previous one. Then temporarily stick them together and stamp on them. Then Cut matting of a complimentary color for in between each layer. In this card I have used these measurements. 
4 x 3 1/2, 3 x 2 1/2, 2 x 1 1/2 All white card stock
4 1/2 x 4, 3 1/4 x 2 3/4, 2 1/4 x 1 3/4 Crumb Cake card stock
Card base measures 4 3/4 x 8 1/2 folded in half.
Then I stamped the happy birthday medallion from Happiest Birthday Ever three times, twice on Pool Party and once on white and punched them each out. One with the scallop circle punch, one with 1" circle punch and the smallest one I hand cut. No punch fits it exactly.Layered on top of each other and popped them on the card with dimensionals. I used crumb cake bias tape for the bow. I ran the crumb cake mats through the Big Shot with the embossing folder Beautifully Baroque. Glued it all together with Tombo glue and put it one a white card stock base. 
The images are from Fresh Vintage and Delicate Doilies and the ink is Crumb cake, Pool Party and Basic Gray.
