Baja Kiwi Tango Tree

This card uses all retired In Colors from last year (and some of my all time favorites as well). The base is Baja breeze, layered with the Holiday Bulk Buy DSP (Tangerine Tango). It’s a strange thing to be using Christmas paper on a Fall card, but this worked!

The main image is a piece of Glossy Card Stock on which I used the Baby Wipe Technique. I put a few drops of Baja Breeze reinker on a folded up baby wipe, then swiped it across the glossy card stock until everything was covered.

Next, I stamped the tree from Season of Friendship in Brown Stazon ink. The stamp moved a little when I picked it up so it made the trunk look a little rough but I like it–more natural! The leaves were stamped in Kiwi Kiss and Tangerine Tango ink on Whisper White card stock, punched out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch. I attached the circles with glue dots.  As for the bird, also from Season of Friendship, I stamped it in Pumpkin Pie ink on Whisper White card stock and trimmed it out. I made a “nest” from a large glue dot and pieces of Hemp Twine. The bird sits on a tiny dimensional above the nest.

Across the bottom of the card, I added some 5/8″ Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon and attached the image layer, on a piece of chocolate chip textured card stock, to the base with dimensionals.
