I'm doing a "take two" with the Garden Meadow Bundle this week.  This Meandering Meadows Suite of products is so gorgeous that one week just didn't do it justice.  And honestly, I'm not sure that two weeks will do it justice either.

Today's card uses the Striped Wipe Technique to create the beautiful sunset for our flower garden.  Striped Wipe is a technique that I shared on my Learning with Friends video last week.  It is a fun technique using baby wipes and reinkers that makes beautiful backgrounds.  If you missed the video, you can watch the replay on my YouTube Channel using the link below.

Each background made with this technique is unique.

My original plan for this card was to have flowers cover the complete bottom of the card, but once I saw my completed Striped Wipe technique I thought it looked like a sunset over the ocean (which was not my plan at all).  But once I saw the result, I decided not to fully cover the bottom of the Technique Sheet.  It was just too pretty to cover a third of it!

Place yourself on an oceanside patio that has a few flowers planted near the patio's edge.  You have just finished watering the flowers with your copper watering can, and you are now sitting in your favorite chair sipping coffee.  This is the view you see.  Would you ever want to leave?  Not me.

The flowers were stamped on Basic White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then colored with Stampin' Blends.  The watering can was stamped on Copper Foil with Black Sazon ink.  All were easily and quickly die cut with coordinating dies from Garden Meadow Dies.  There is no time for fussy cutting when you have a view like this to enjoy!

After I die cut the Striped Wipe Technique Sheet with the arch die from the Garden Meadow Bundle, I had a little scrap strip leftover.  Since I had planned to have flowers cover the complete bottom of my card front, I also ended up with a couple of leftover flower die cuts.  Never one to let something pretty go to waste I used the scrap technique strip and the extra flowers to decorate the inside of my card.  I love it when I don't have to think about how to make the inside of a card pretty.  I just use leftovers!
