ATS Chipboard Challenge




Hello! It's Wednesday again!! Time for another ATS Challenge. This week the challenge is to use chipboard on your project. This card is a little different than my usual style, but I think I like it. I wanted to use this chipboard piece from SU! On Board Accents, and I thought it would be a great "frame" for the Glam Girls! So, since the girls are a little funky and fun, I pulled out this flower paper from the Kaleidoscope collection by My Mind's Eye. Definitely retro, don't you think? the rest of the materials are what I had left from the Sweet Treats Card Kit.

To cover the chipboard, I first cut the paper to size. Then I placed the paper over the chipboard and turned it upside down. I traced the holes and punched them out with a 1 1/4" circle punch (it's the perfect size). I adhered the paper to the chipboard with Mono Multi adhesive, then I just did a little sanding around the edges.

I colored the images with Copics. For some added texture, I used my Cuttlebug and two embossing folders: Swiss Dots and Bloom Dots. I punched the hole for the ribbon with my Crop-A-Dile. I matted the chipboard and mounted it to the card with Dimensionals.

Stop by the All That Scraps Blog later today to see what the rest of the DT created for this challenge. Play along with us, too! Use the keyword ATSDTC08 when uploading your project to a public gallery. Leave a link here, too -- I'd love to see it! :)

Tomorrow Chris and I are headed to Michigan for a wedding. We'll be back sometime Sunday. I have a couple posts scheduled while I'm gone -- I'll catch up with all of you when I get home! Have a fantastic weekend, everyone -- thank you so much for visiting today! :)
