hello Fall! Wreath Card

hello Fall!  This card was CASEd from Pinterest, one of my favorite craft obsessions!  It allows me to get my creativity mojo back when I feel like it's been too long since I've had time to craft.  Kristi Gray did a great job creating this card.
I love how this Wondrous Wreath set allows for use during all seasons and not just for the upcoming holidays.  I used the Baby Wipe technique for the wreath which allowed all the beautiful colors of fall to come out.  If you've never used the Baby Wipe technique, it is so simple and really adds a "WOW" factor to your cards.  For the Baby Wipe technique, you need some ink refills, a baby wipe or hand wipe, card stock and a stamp.  Tip: don't use a line art stamp or you won't be able to see the different colors from your baby wipe on the image you stamped.  Also, place a paper plate under your baby wipe so you won't ruin your table or crafting space underneath.  Squeeze the ink refills in a circle pattern or a line pattern (whatever you look you are trying to achieve).  Just a drop or two will do and add the different ink refill colors in this pattern until your space is filled up.  Place your stamp on top of the baby wipe where you have left the ink refill drops and lift up.  Stamp onto a sheet of card stock and lift straight up when you are done.  It leaves quite the impression and "WOW" once the stamp is lifted off the card stock. 
Close up of the wreath....I love how realistic these fall colors look on this wreath!
For this card, I used the Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry ink refills on a baby wipe.  I place the drops of ink from lightest to darkest to make sure that I have all the colors on the baby wipe before I stamp.  Tip: If you are creating more than one card, be sure to clean off your stamp each time you use it or you will end up with a mess of colors all mixed up on your stamp.  After the wreath was stamped onto Very Vanilla card stock, I cut it out using the coordinating Framelits and adhered it to the card with dimensionals.  This card has a Very Vanilla layer embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder on top of a Soft Suede layer and adhered to a Very Vanilla card base.  A banner was created at the bottom of the card using markers and the "hello FALL!" sentiment from the For All Things stamp set.  I cut it out using the Banner Framelits and adhered it with dimensionals.
