Chipboard Star

Chipboard Star

This morning I found out that Stampin’ Up! is having a chipboard sale next month, so I decided to add a “chipboard” card to my stamp class next week.

I took a large star from the Simon Upper On Board package and traced the outline on Afternoon Tea Designer Series paper. After cutting out the star, I adhered it to the chipboard with my new favorite adhesive (Tombow Multi Purpose) and sanded the edges down after the glue dried. The smaller dotted star was stamped in Close to Cocoa ink on Whisper White paper and punched out. I needed a small sentiment for the small star and found “wow!” in the Amazing to Zany stamp set.

I cut a 3-1/2″ circle out of Soft Sky paper and ran the silver end of my ZIG Painty pen along the edge. A 2″ strip of striped Afternoon Tea DS paper was placed over the circle and four silver eyelets set in the corners.

All in all a quick and simple card with a little bit of wow! Thanks for stopping by!
