I'm wiping it up!

How's that for a title?? Anyway, I actually tried a new style of card called a Wiper Card. It's so cool! The reason it's called this is when the card is opened there are 1 or 2 "arms" that pop up!

I used one of the new free download paper patterns from TAC. Since I was running out of black ink it printed is this cool pink! The card is a standard A2 size. The stamped images are from the hostess set Enjoy Nature using L'Amore, Viridian Green and Raw Sienna PH inks. I also used black ribbon, flowers and button from the Audrey Embellishment Jar and Garden Mix Bitty Blossoms, white scrapper's floss, green brad, and a cool circle embellishment that I found. I added some bling on the stamped flowers with my Stardust Clear Gel pen. The black and white label was given to me. I used my Scor-Pal (my favorite tool) to create this and they may have the directions on the site. When I checked a week ago it wasn't posted yet.

Here you see the 2 wiper arms and the left side of the card. The text on the left side arm is from the hostess set Thinking of You. The text on the right arm is from the Great Greetings set and both are stamped with Noir PH ink. All the butterflies have been embellished with the Stardust Clear Gel pen, my favorite bling maker.

Here is a closeup of one of the butterflies. They are all embellished with the Stardust Clear Gel pen. Did I mention it's my favorite bling maker?? I used Pop Dots to give the butterflies some depth.

Tonight I'll be giving my mom this card as we celebrate her birthday and our anniversary by going to Red Lobster. I will show my hubby's card in my next post so stay tuned! Oh, and Dean got me a Chiminea (not sure of the spelling) which is a small outdoor fireplace. I'll take a picture soon and another one when I get it painted and stamped! It's NAKED right now!

Carol, very nice card, great attention to detail and obviously time intensive. Love the results! BTW, my son lives in Phoenix, I was there in Sept., went to Sedona just before the flooding. Enjoy your chiminea, hope no rattlers curl up in there! If so you can have a new type BBQ, LOL Sharon in NJ
