JAI 227 Just Add Chipboard

Hello there,
ever since we had our Just Add a Shaker challenge a few weeks back I've had shakers in the back of my mind and when a special family birthday was coming up I figured the new Miss Four would love to have one. I did use something special in the making - chipboard. And that is what we want you to add at Just Add Ink this week - Just Add chipboard. 

(Chipboard is a thick cardboard. You find it on the back of notepads, its the backing in your DSP packets, and can buy chipboard accents and alphabets. Coaster board and even multiple layers of cardstock glued together will be just as good).

Now I did a good job of disguising my chipboard so I wanted to include a couple of photos to show you how I used it here. First die cut and embossed.
And then covered with a layer of die cut and embossed cardstock.

Bright and fun and something to use for my shaker frame were the starting points - enter Sweet Taffy DSP and On Film framelit. I cut up some crazy strips of the DSP to cover the front of the card and then proceeded to cover most of that up (rolling my eyes at my good planning) with the die cut frame. The bright continues on into the shaker - with some stamped HAPPYs and lots of bright die cut Number Fours (too many actually - I'm always tempted to add to many shakey bits!). I'm pretty the new Miss Four is going to love this and also know she is going to have to shake it really hard to get the bits to move around :O

For lots of inspiring ideas for using chipboard do check out the rest of the DT.
