Wondrous Autumn Card

Had seen the video on YouTube by Sandi MacIver using the Baby Wipe Technique with the Stampin Up Wondrous Wreath stamp and die set. Listened to what she suggested and so I made cards using her technique. Using the Baby Wipe Technique each of the wreaths are different in colours:

To begin with I used the Baby Wipe Technique, following her colour suggestions, and stamped the wreath base stamp onto white/GP card stock. Using red ink I stamped the berries stamp onto all the wreaths. I cut the wreaths out using the matching die set in the Big Shot. Added clear Wink of Stella to the berries. Set these aside -- here is a photo to show the sparkle of the berries:

Using Kraft Paper Trey Ink card stock I cut and scored my four card stock bases. I used the bone folder to crease the fold line. For my card I wanted to use rust card stocks for the two pieces on the left front of the card. Cut my light and darker rust card stocks for the left front of my cards. For the lighter rust pieces I used a leaves embossing folder by Tim Holtz and embossed those in the Cuttlebug. The thinner, darker rust piece is not embossed. On some cards I put the embossed pieces with the embossing raised and other cards have the embossing indented:

These photos show each card:

"Autumn Greetings" is a stamp from Whipper Snapper and I used rust ink for that. Using the ATG I put the embossed and the darker rust pieces on the left front of my cards. The wreaths are on the cards using pop dots. For the solid rust bows I used a Fiskars punch and the open looped bow is a die. Put the bows on the wreaths using glue dots. Adding a brown crystal from the stash to the center of each bow.

Thanks to Sandi for a great video showing her technique and for her tips on getting the results you want. TFL and YOLO
