When we think about creating fall-themed cards, it’s a good time to pull out the baby wipe technique. Although it can be used for other themes, this technique lends itself really well for fall.
What is the baby wipe technique? (Be sure to watch the video below to see step-by-step visual instructions for making this technique come to life.) But here’s the crux of it:
Layer a couple of baby wipes on a Silicone Craft Sheet
Drip a few drops of reinker of desired colors on the baby wipe. For this card, I used Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, and Cherry Cobbler. Make sure to cover the area the size of the stamp.
Use the baby wipe as your ink pad. Press the stamp onto the wipe and then stamp on your card stock.
Gorgeously Made Baby Wipe Technique
For today’s card, I used the large leaf stamp from Stampin’ Up!’s Gorgeously Made stamp set. Here are some other details that may help you create this card at home:
Thick Very Vanilla Card Stock Base measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
