Baby Wipe Technique

This card was made using the baby wipe technique. It's very easy and gives a unique look. (You'll have to excuse my fuzzy photo. Our camera battery was really low, but I didn't want to wait for it to charge to post this! haha)

Stamps: Close as a Memory
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, Whisper White, Apricot Appeal Cardstock
Ink: Tempting Turquoise and Kiwi Kiss Re-inkers, Versamark
Accessories: Apricot Appeal Ribbon, Baby Wipe

1. Score 5 1/2 x 8 Not Quite Navy Cardstock at 4 1/4 and fold on line.
2. Fold a baby wipe in half and drop ink from re-inkers in random pattern big enough to use as a stamp pad for the stamp.
3. Stamp image from Close as a Memory onto 2 1/2 x 3 piece of Whisper White cardstock, using ink from baby wipe.
4. Adhere only the top part of the image to 2 3/4 x 3 1/4 piece of Old Olive. Tear both pieces along the bottom.
5. Slide a 4 inch piece of Apricot Appeal ribbon between the layers and adhere to back on one side. Cut the other side at an angle. Adhere the bottom portion of the Whisper White to the Old Olive.
6. Stamp the image and sentiment from Close as a Memory onto card base using Versamark ink. 
7. Adhere image to top left corner.
8. For the inside, adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Apricot Appeal cardstock to card base.
