Baby Wipe Technique – Part Two – Christmas Theme

By | August 10, 2016

Hi there

I had already decided to use the baby wipe technique when my second card class emailed and asked if they could have Christmas themed cards.  Not a problem – this technique works well for any theme. I decided to go with the Embellished Ornaments stamp set and use the baubles images.  The colours are not your traditional Christmas colours but I think they turned out rather well.

The colours I chose were Calypso Coral, Island Indigo, Pool Party and Soft Sky.  The two outer ornaments are stamped directly onto the card front while the middle ornament is adhered with dimensionals.

A bit of silver foil or some ‘bling’ just finishes them off

The silver metallic thread doubled over creates the hanger as the die cut just didn’t look right.

I then had a thought – what about the single image from Lovely as a Tree.  This time I’ve just gone with four shades of green.

The four greens are – Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Always Artichoke and Pear Pizzazz

I had some sentiments left over from last Christmas so added those – I think I may add some Wink of Stella to the trees for a bit of a sparkle.

I have really loved playing with this technique – it’s so easy and is heaps of fun.  I hope you give it a go.
