Sliver Snow Flake

I just realized I didn't miss challenge #37 over at the friday mashup. They are keeping it open till Jan. 4th. YEAH
So here we go one step backwards Challenge #37
Heidi wants to see what we can do with Chip boards and Distressing.

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project featuring "Chipboard (Precut or Diecut )".
  2. Or Make a project with "Distressing ( ink, scissors or the Cutter Tool Kit)".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Distressed Project featuring Chipboard"

I had to use cardboard because I don't have any chip board at all. But what I did have is a lid from a foil pan. I used the pan and for some reason I saved the lid.The distressing part was easy I do it all the time. Here's what I came up with.

I used Rich Razzleberry as my card base. My background is Pretty In Pink and I used the  Snowflake Cuddlebug embossing folder. I then Distressed the edges with Rich Razzleberry ink and roughed up the edges with The cutter tool. The 1/2" strip of pretty in Pink has been inked  with Rich Razzleberry using Wonderfully worn background stamp and edged it the same as the background. I die cut the snowflake from that piece of lid I told you about and also a 1 1/2" circle. then I layered that with a Pretty in Pink 1 3/8" circle. The stamp I used is from the Prefect Punches set and cut the middle out using the 1 1/4" circle. I also edged this in the same way. Then added a few sliver heart shaped brad and I 'm calling done.

I hope you like my card. Thank you for visiting my blog.
Happy holidays and have fun stamping your way into the New Year.
