OCC Chipboard Challenge

Hi everyone! Hope you're enjoying your weekend so far. Today's OCC Challenge is to use chipboard somewhere on your card or project. Here's the link to the OCC Blog so you can check out the details of the challenge and see all the pretty samples from my fellow OCC girls as well as our guest designer this week, the SUPER talented Cindy Lawrence! :)

My daughter's bestest little friend turns 4 in October, so this card is for her. The big number 4 started out as a plain pink chipboard piece with adhesive backing. I covered it with Versamark, sprinkled on some heat and stick powder, heated it with my heat gun, then sprinkled on some of Taylor's Raspberry Soda glitter (yummmmmy stuff!!), and heated it again to seal the glitter. The white panel with the number 4 is up on dimensionals. The "flag" end of the sentiment was done by sticking the sentiment into a tag punch at an angle. You could also use the corner of a square punch....I just don't own the square punch.

Except for the chipboard number 4 and the PTI White CS, all elements on my card are from Taylor's Birthday Girl Key Ingredients pack. Love these packs that she's put together!! So pretty and so much fun!!

The inside of the card has an Intense Orange panel, a panel of the same DP that's on the front of the card, and then a white panel with one of the cupcakes stamped in the lower left corner. After I had it all glued together and onto the card, I realized I should have matted the stamped white panel with Orange. It was too late to do that...so instead, I took my YR15 Yellow Orange Copic and outlined the white panel.
