A Chipboard Challenge...

This is a card I made for this week's challenge over on the Hanna Stamps forum at Splitcoast Stampers - the challenge for this week is to use chipboard on your card. I love chipboard - I use it a lot in my scrapping - but I can't remember the last time I used it on a card - what a fun challenge!! I have quite the stash of chipboard - so I was happy to go digging thru it to see what I could find! The letters on the card are from a pre-cut set of chipboard letters by We R Memory Keepers - I inked the edges of them a bit. The photo corner is also a pre-cut chipboard piece - from a Basic Grey set - I painted it with white acrylic paint and inked the edges of it with a Chestnut Roan Cat's Eye Fluid Chalk Ink Pad. Once it was all dry - I stamped the word "Celebrate" on to the photo corner. The main Hanna image on the card is from the recently released "Patriotic Hanna" mini-set - isn't she a beauty? I love her - she reminds me of the Statue of Liberty or Betsy Ross. The background paper on the card is from the new Die Cuts with a View Summer Stack available at JoAnn's - wow - what beautiful paper in this new stack! I pieced the background of this card together with 2 different patterned papers from the stack and then machine stitched at the seams. What a fun challenge!! Come on over and play with us - dig into that stash of chipboard or make your own from those backs on paper pads or old cereal boxes - here's the link.... - thanks so much for stopping by!
