On Board With Chipboard!

WOW is there ever a lot of pieces in the "On Board Blossoms & Basics" chipboard package! I am just amazed. And so what do I pick out of all of it? A simple flower!!! LOL Oh well, you have to start somewhere right? I affixed decorative paper to the chipboard, trimmed around it close to the chipboard and then took an emery board and filed away the excess paper. Then I took a marker and colored the edges of the chipboard to match. I embossed the flower and then added the micro mini beads in the center along with a few black punched out dots. I added "thank you" words from the "Circle of Friendship" stamp set. For the background I used "Print Pattern" and I layered it all on Basic Black card stock. It made a great Thank you card, quick and simple too! A reminder here, with as much Crystal Effects as I used to keep the beads and black dots in place, I needed to let it sit for about a half hour before I could assemble it. So if you're in a hurry to make these, you may want to assemble the card first and add the Crystal Effects, beads and dots on last. Then use your embossing gun, a ways away from the flower, you just want to use it to dry the item, not to heat it up. If you have a blow drier, better yet!

Thank you for stopping by,
