Beautiful Sunset Card

Beautiful Sunset Baby Wipe Swipe Technique 

This Beautiful Sunset was created using a technique called Baby Wipe Swipe.  Traditionally this technique is done on Glossy White Card stock, but for this card we use Shimmery White Card Stock.  This card was one of our August Stamp Club projects. The Baby Wipe Swipe Technique was also highlighted in August's Stamping Country Newsletter.   

Stamping Tips:

  • The Shimmery White card stock give the sunset a beautiful shimmer, though the technique is easier to accomplish using Glossy White card stock because the Baby Wipe glides across the card stock more easily.

  • The Grass was first embossed using Basic Black Craft Ink and Clear Embossing Powder.
