Happy Birthday Gorgeous Baby Wipes

Glossy cardstock is back!  I'm so happy because I used it a lot back in 2007 with a technique using baby wipes.  Here are the directions for my card:

1.     Base of the card is Emerald Envy cardstock cut at 4-1/4” x 11” and scored at 5-1/2” in the middle.  Cut another piece of cardstock at 3-1/2” x 3-1/2”
2.    The second layer is Lemon Lime Twist cardstock cut at 4” x 5-1/4”.  Cut another piece of cardstock at 3-1/2” x 3-1/2”
3.    The third layer is Glossy cardstock cut at 3-3/4” x 5”.
4.    Take a Baby Wipe and fold it to about 1” in width.  Add 3 drops of Emerald Envy at one end and 3 drops of Lemon Lime Twist at the other end.
5.    Start just above the top of the Glossy cardstock with the Emerald Envy end wipe straight down the length with the baby wipe.  Then on either side, wipe with the Lemon Lime Twist side, and again on either side with the Emerald Envy.  Let dry!
6.    Cut two of the  Sizzix Adhesive Sheets at 3-1/2” x 3-1/2” and adhere one to the back of the 3-1/2” x 3-1/2” Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and the other to the 3-1/2” x 3-1/2” Emerald Envy cardstock.
7.    Use the Happy Birthday Thinlet to die cut out one of each.  Remove backing.
8.    Layer the Lemon Lime Twist “Happy Birthday” first and then offset with the Emerald Envy “Happy Birthday” as shown above.

Looks like a fun technique - definitely hunting out my glossy cardstock. Hmmm - does it work on mirror card, I wonder.....
