Chipboard Cards with Guest Designer Karen

Hey everyone!   It is Guest Designer Karen again with my final guest designing post.  It has been so much fun coming up with so many different projects for WRC and I can't wait to share my final one with you.

Chipboard die cuts provide a strong focal point for a card.  They are so intricately cut and are a very versatile product.  

I love the texture and detail it gives a project.  

First, I began by selecting the background papers and then chose coordinating paint and ink.  If you color your chipboard first and then search your stash for paper that matches, you will often end up frustrated.  

I colored the heart chipboard with ink and painted the other but they can easily be colored with many different mediums. 

All the cards needed were a few pretty flowers and jewel embellishments.  I chose to leave the cards without a sentiment so that I can use them for any last minute need that arises.  You can browse all the beautiful chipboard designs...HERE.
