Today I’m sharing another wiper card. Sometimes when I think on an interactive card design I realize that I have many stamp sets that will work well to make an interactive scene. That was the case with my Go Bananas wiper card, so now, although I know I should be making summery cards, I’ve made a new wiper card with a fall scene.
For this card, I used Hello Bluebird stamps and dies. For the front panel, I stamped the “Blowing Leaves” background stamp on kraft cardstock using brown ink and colored the leaves using color pencils. I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops on some of the dots. I loved so much the pattern that I did not want to cover it too much, so I heat embossed the sentiment on white on a tag die cut from vellum. I added the pair of acorns image (also to have a place to put some glue) and used a string of burlap twine to tie the tag to the panel.
For the inside, I used the images from the “Oh Nuts!” stamp set. I love those squirrels!! I tried to color them using light colors since I tend to use very bold colors. As I wanted squirrels peeking from the upper and the lower side of the card, I had to create two borders. For the lower one, I used a simple hillside, while for the upper one I knew I wanted some treetops in different fall colors.
I used Distress Inks to blend all the die-cut pieces and splattered some water and ink on the same colors. On the treetops, I also splattered some drops of Nuvo mousse on Indian gold color mixed with water.
Here you have a short clip of the card:
I think this card turned out very well. I love the colors and the scene! I’m addicted to this mechanism, and I have plans of making at least one more card using it.
