This weekend at the Paper Craft Weekend Challenge blog, Allison's challenge was to choose chipboard, and Caroline's was to use baker's twine. Since I did not have the time to participate in both challenges, I combined them. Here is my result:
Chipboard flower, DCWV mat stacks (The Fall Glitter Matstack and Harvest Gathering Matstack), Stampin Up supplies-Very vanilla and chocolate chip cardstock, chocolate chip scalloped edge ribbon, Vintage Labels stamp set, Fabulous Phrases stamp set, chocolate chip ink spot, chocolate chip marker, crushed curry marker (used to color chipboard daisy), really rust button, Daisies # 2 Die, Vintage label punch, Mini word punch; and Martha Stewart Twine.
Card size is A2. Matstack cardstock was cut to create a two patterned card front. Stamped and punched "Smile" label. Threaded ribbon through label and tape to back of cardfront. Chipboard flower colored with Crushed Curry marker and center was sponged with Chocolate chip ink. Leave about 4 inch tail of twine at front of chipboard flower and wrap twine through petal openings going around petal until each opening has twine wraped through twice. You should end with two pieces of twine facing each other. Cut twine so there is now two 4" tails. Thread each piece of twine through button and tie into a bow. Run Chocolate Chip cardstock through die cut machine with Daisies #2 Die. Glue chipboard flower on top of Daisy, making sure you can see the daisy under the chipboard flower. Set aside. Using Chocolate chip marker make stitches around bottom half of card front. Adhere flower to cardfront as show. Adhere completed card front to Very Vanilla card.
