CHIPBOARD ON CARDS

Using chipboard is not a specialty of mine. I keep forgetting I even have it and trust me I have a lot! When I do remember it I never quite know what to do with it.

Diane included some chipboard pieces in the Fall Craft Kit she put together for the FLYbaby Stampers on SCS and so I decided I needed to use at least those pieces. I needed a get well card and it is fall so I used the kit to come up with this card. I'm ot sure the butons add anything but they are there and stuck well so there they will stay. I don't think embelishements are my forte. I may just leave that aspecyt of card making to my buddy Lee. She does such a great job with embellies of all kinds. If you have never been to here BLOG to see the wonderul work she does you must go there. It's called My Reality....It's All Good! And it is!!!!!!!

I colored the chipboard with my copic markers. They work well for dark colors not for lighter ones. The leaf is a sticker. Normally I don't use stickers on cards but this one worked well and shows up nicely.


I do like the sentiment that I put on the front of the card. Its from SU's set Nice and Easy Notes which is a favorite of mine and of course is retired. I seem to be in a gold embossing mood lately. I've been using it on a lot of cards. Maybe it is the fall maybe it is getting ready for the holidays which are rapidly approaching I don't know, but it is showing up on a lot of my cards.

Well thats it for today. Not sure how much stamping I will be getting done in the next few days. I need to spend some more time sewing for the craft fair I am part of next weekend. I will try and split my time between sewing and stamping this weekend.

See you later. Thanks for stopping by.

I think the whole thing looks good just the way it is! I like the buttons- they're not necessary but they add a little "pop".
