Baby Wipe Card

I made this card for this week's One Layer Wednesday challenge.



The challenge was to use lines on your card. I couldn't think of a good stamp to use, and then I thought of this technique. It was so fun and simple, I may make a note card set of them! How to do it? You fold a baby wipe several times. Then you put a drop or two of classic reinker along one folded edge. Then put one or two drops of the next color right beside it, there should be no white space in between the colors. Repeat along this edge adding all the colors you want to use. Once you have added your colors to the baby wipe, run that edge across the cardstock to creat a stripe! For my card I used a Whisper White base and Pacific Point, Garden Green, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red inks.  Then I dusted it with an embossing buddy, stamped the greeting from Friendly Phrases in Versamark, added black embossing powder and heated it with a heat gun. 

Everything used to create this card is available from Stampin' Up! If you would like to purchase Stampin' Up products, please visit my business website at www.trina_kuriger.stampinup.net.

  5. beautiful card. I usually just use a direct to paper technique by sliding my ink pad across - this is nicer as you get more control. CLASSY! These are my favorite cards to use - simple, fast and WOW factor. Now, to think of my own idea to participate.
