Sparkly Mom!

This is for yesterday's Ways to Use It challenge on SCS. The challenge was to use chipboard. I created the "MOM" image using my Big Shot to cut images out of a cereal box, gluing several layers together to simulate chipboard. Then I sponged & glittered the letters & flower to make them extra-special! I also used the Big Shot to create the background: I covered a piece of Brocade Blue with silver Shimmer Paint; when it was dry I ran it through the Big Shot with a texture plate, then I used a sanding block to remove the paint from the raised areas & let the blue show through. This technique is called Acrylic Distress and was a Weekly Inkling a few weeks ago. The white layer is punched with the new Scallop Trim Border punch. Colors for this card are Brocade Blue, Barely Banana, and Whisper White. TFL!

Box of cards

My neighbor's son joined the army, so I made this card & box for him as a going-away gift. The box is full of cards & envelopes so he can keep in touch with his mom while he's away.
