Use the Chipboard

Use your chipboard was Allison's challenge on September. Yes the Allison aka goodybag diva who is on our DT at thebugbytes and has started a fun filled Challenge Blog Paper Craft Challenge.
Now this was a little bit easy to do - easy on me lol as I didn't have to pull out much paper. I love paper so much that I have more than 1 stack of each in case gasp!! I have to cut them!
I still pulled out my DCWV luxury card stack and I have to run soon to refill that of course but the chipboard was the easy part. I have lotsof medium weight Grafix ones so I took out one . I had got the flower stamp a while back at Archiver's so I approx measured the dimension of that and hacked the chipboard :)

I inked up the stamp with more than one ink - black, martha stewart gold and distress brick etc etc. Then I used a metallic acrylic paint by decor art to edge the board. I also used pearl pen and glaze pen to slightly go within the flower petal lines as I did not want a too opaque white but a mild white but I wanted some dimension on it. I applied the gold to the center. Then I stamped "simply amazing" - from paper trey stamps . I just took 2 ribbons one satin and one gold sheer and layered them.and stuck them down. Then just made the knot with another couple of pieces and glue dotted them on one edge. I will add a sentiment inside maybe on a thinner cereal box chipboard and the card is done.
A very simple card and I like how the chipboard looks
