Autumn Wishes~~Card closed

This is the Tri Fold Card closed up and held with a decorative belly band. ( photo of the card opened up is on the following post).

The challenge of die cutting the card is keeping the base card stock in one piece while die cutting the top portion through the Big Shot without cutting through the fold.
I then cut two more framelits in descending size.

To stamp the leaves, I used the "baby wipes" technique.

This is achieved by first laying down three layers of aluminum foil. On top of that, layer four moist baby wipes. Next, choose three or four re inker colours and drop about four drops of each colour onto the baby wipes, being careful not to overlap colours. Voila! You have now created your very own, unique "stamp pad".

Next step is to stamp your leaf images by placing your stamp down while overlapping colours on your "ink pad". When you twist the stamps around in different directions, you will get different colour combinations.

I then made the belly band, fussy cut the leaves and applied them with dimensionals.

Now go to next post to see details of the card opened up.
