Technique Tuesday – Day of Gratitude Wiper Card

Stampin Up Days of Gratitude Wiper Card

 

The Wiper Card. This has to be one of the easiest Fancy Fold cards to make. Two score lines on two same sized pieces of cardstock and the little wiper piece at the top and you are good to go.

Scroll down to watch the video and you will be making Wiper Cards in no time. (If you received this message by e-mail or in a blog reader, you may need to visit my blog to see the link.)

 

For this card, I used more new products from the Holiday Mini catalogue. This time the Holiday celebrated is Thanksgiving with a fall colour pallette. The Autumn Spice Specialty designer series paper has Cajun Craze, Old Olive, More Mustard and Early Espresso. Isn’t this paper great?

The stamp set is Day of Gratitude – a set of 7. I think the images in this set are beautiful and can be used well after Fall.

For this card, I stamped the large circular image and the greeting onto So Saffron cardstock with Early Espresso ink. I mounted the greeting onto a larger piece of Cajun Craze cardstock and the other image onto layers of Early Espresso and Cajun Craze. I inserted an Early Espresso brad into the center of the image.

I love the coordinating embellishments on this card. Early Espresso ribbon, brad and button. Don’t you love SU! products and the way they match?

    awsome! Never seen anything like that before, we’re so behind here!!! All of my christmas cards will now be wiper cards!

    Do you find it easier to decorate before or after making the card?

    tfs,

    I have seen these wiper cards before, but never as nice as this one. Your video tutorial was fantastic and easy to follow – thank you for sharing.

    Thanks Meg! I like wiper cards because they don’t require too much thought. In fact, I made this one at 1 am. Crazy!

    Hi Melle-

    I like to decorate before assembling unless the card is really bulky. I’m going to have to make some Christmas Cards myself this year. Great idea!

    LOVED YOUR CARD. YOUR TUTORIAL MADE ME THINK THAT I CAN ACTUALLY MAKE ONE OF THESE CARDS. TFS
