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
The card bases are (from top) Watermelon Wonder, Cherry Cobbler, Cucmber Crush and Real Red
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.
This one is my favourite.
I have really loved playing with this technique – it’s so easy and is heaps of fun. I hope you give it a go.
