With SU's chipboard promotion this month, I thought it would be a good idea to show a few things you can do with it. When I sat down to make this card, I didn't know that it would become a great example! Two pieces of chipboard are used on this design . . . the circle shaker with the heart "window" and the little heart at the base of the rattle. The small heart is covered with designer paper, and the circle has been colored with ink. With many of the chipboard pieces that you get, you have the chipboard piece itself, but you also have a negative piece to work with. The circle on this card mimics the negative, although it's actually a "useable" piece of chipboard. After I inked the circle, I used the Coluzzle to cut an acetate circle to close the heart window so the beads wouldn't fall out. I then used the edges of Stampin' Dimensionals all around the window, poured in some Clear Micro Beads, and then put a 1-1/4" circle backing on top of the Dimensionals. This shaker ensemble was adhered to a punched Scallop circle. On the chipboard heart, I covered it with the Anywhere Glue Stick, cut a piece of designer paper to size/shape, and then laid it on top of the heart. SU's sanding block was used to smooth the edges. Other SU products used to create this project include East Coast Prep designer paper, Slit punch, Word Window punch, Wild Wasabi card stock, a More Mustard brad, and 1/4" white grosgrain ribbon.
