Little things | birthday cards

This month sees the release of Scrapware's new card sheet collection!  Beautiful chipboard designs for boys, girls and babies.  The following three cards were created using the one chipboard sheet and there is still shapes leftover to create another card! Talk about great value.  This would make a really economical project for a kids class (or adult...teehee).

To create these cards, you only need one sheet of cardstock and one sheet of patterned paper.  First, trim a 12"x4" strip from your cardstock and fold in half. Then trim the remainder so that you have two 6"x8" pieces. Fold these in half too. Each card front will measure 6"x4"...perfect for a standard sized envelope.  The patterned paper on the front of each card measure 5.5"x3.5".

I have coated the chipboard in texta, then dimensional magic or glitter glue (Martha Stewart).  Isn't that robot just adorable!  I bent his claws so that he'd hold the chipboard words.
Love this super cute rocket!  I defined the areas first with a craft knife and then filled with colour.  Brads fill the holes perfectly and add a little more dimension.
Just because a piece of chipboard is flat, doesn't mean you can't add definition. I have used four different colours on the planet to define the curve of the planet.
Product used: Scrapware's Boy Card Kit CH471
