Colorful Seasons - Fall - Baby Wipe Technique

For the second class card featuring the Colorful Seasons stamp set and its coordinating framelits, the baby wipe technique was used to create the lovely fall colors.  Two cards were made, the second one being a bonus card.

If you're not familiar with the Baby Wipe Technique, check out the tutorial hereThe author did the technique a bit different than the way I did it in class.  For example, I used a large stamping block to put the baby wipes on, and then used one baby wipe folded in 4 to create my "ink pad".
The re-inker colors I used were as follows:  Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, and Cajun Craze (about 3-4 drops of each color, applied close together).
I stamped 3 large leaves down the left side, and then added 3 small ones.  Some black "dots" were added using the "dot stamp" from "Timeless Texture"
After stamping the sentiment, the art piece was matted with Basic Black cardstock, and added to the Cajun Craze card front using dimensionals.
Before adding the art piece, some 1/4" copper trim was wrapped around the card front and tied at the right side.
This card was a top fold card, so the ribbon was easy to wrap around, but if it was a side fold card, a tiny slit would have to be made in the middle fold so the ribbon could be inserted though that.

Similar stamping was done on the inside, and the sentiment "Thinking of you" , from the same stamp set, was used.
Supplies Used:
Stamps: Colorful Seasons, Timeless Texture
Inks:  Black Memento, Reinkers (Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight)
Papers:  Cajun Craze, Whisper White, Black Memento
Accessories:  1/4" copper trim, dimensionals, baby wipes

This is another version of the front of the card, where a different sentiment (from "Just Add Text" is stamped on a separate piece of Whisper White and punched with the new Pretty Label Punch".  The edges are sponged with Cajun Craze ink before adding to the art piece with dimensionals.
