Today I felt like making some Christmas cards so I checked with the Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge for May. The challenge is to use chipboard on your cards. Well, I love using chipboard and I use it often. I like making my own embellishments with chipboard and dies.
I pulled out the Waltzingmouse 2011 Holiday Ornaments stamp set and Nestabilities 2011 Heirloom Ornaments dies and made this Christmas card:
I used the chipboard in two different places. I die cut the ornaments on cream cardstock and chipboard and glued them together. Very cute! I can easily see really cute tags or ornaments made with these stamps and dies. The other place I used the chipboard is behind the card panel. I wanted something more substantial than the patterned paper by itself because I wanted to pop it up off the card base.
I made 4 of these cards for my stash:
