Bubble Wiper Card

CBK1CBK2

I have long wanted to make a wiper card, especially after seeing all the amazing inspiration from fellow team member Ali Farmer, her lovely video is here. I love all interactive cards and I feel the more kinds I make, the better I’ll become and hopefully I’ll design some of my own types hopefully.  I didn’t own a “wiper” die when I made this, I simply looked at several videos and made my own.

  1. Cut one panel of cardstock to the dimensions of 7.5 (length) inches by 4.25 (height) inches.  Along the 7.5 length, score at 5.5 inches and again at 6.5 inches.  Make a mountain fold with the folds on this panel.  I blended a custom color of distress oxide ink that I had made (a few drops of mowed lawn added to a lot of broken china) with a cloud stencil from My Favorite Things and the Blendability brushes from Trinity Stamps.
  2. I cut a second panel of cardstock to the dimensions of 7.5 (length) inches by 3 inches (height).  I blended the entire panel with Distress Oxide ink “Mowed Lawn” with the use of the Trinity Blendability brushes.  I then die cut the entire panel multiple times with a grass die that I had (I used Lawn Fawn, but please use any company’s) and then scored the panel along the length at 1 inch and then 2 inches.
  3. I prepared the wiper mechanism by cutting a 1 inch by 1/2 inch rectangle and then scored and folded the rectangle as shown belowIMG_3712.jpg
  4. I cut a 3 inch by 1/2 inch piece of acetate which I stapled to a one side with the corner folded down.  The other scored side was adhered to the back of the grass.  I checked that the wiper mechanism worked before continuing on with the card.
  5. Finally I stamped images and a sentiment from the Bubbles stamp set and copic colored them before adhering them to the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you will try to make a wiper card!
