Basic Grey Chipboard challenge #17


This weeks Basic Grey challenge is to use chipboard, any chipboard. This week I used the Infuse collection of papers. The top piece of my sketch is actually a piece of chipboard with the 4 circles taken out of it. I thought that would make perfect windows for my Buzzin Around bees. They actually fit perfectly.


I mounted a piece of Infuse Lace paper on top of the chipboard. Then with an exacto knife, I made X'x in the circles of the paper. Then also with the exacto knife, I cut out the circles from the holes. Then with a round file, I filed down all the rough edges. I stamped my bees and flower in Jet Black ink by Staz-On onto Whisper White cardstock. I watercolored the bees with Pink Pirouette, Tangerine Tango and Kiwi Kiss and the flower in Regal Rose. I then taped them to the windows of the chipboard. I mounted that piece onto Garden Green cardstock leaving that piece a bit longer to put the words underneath the focal point. My base card is 5 1/4" square of Chocolate Chip with Regal Rose and then a piece of Infuse Breathe. All stamps are by Stampin Up!!! Then to finish the card, I used a piece of pink organza ribbon on top.
