Chipboard Technique

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!! I am on the mend!  I have a card to share with you today and a video tutorial link from my favorite go to girl for inspiration, my lovely talented friend Christina. Before we get to the tutorial, have you ever heard of Nestaboard??

Nestaboard is a chipboard that can be used many ways , it is put out by "Want2Scrap" and if you are into spellbinders you will love this product for you can achieve the same results for less the cost! They can be used in so many ways, it all comes down to your imagination!

Christina  put together an "alternative spellbinders" video sharing a way you can use Nestaboard her own unique way.

Click HERE to see "Alternative Spellbinders" video tutorial.

I may not have Nestaboard but I did have pieces of chipboard that had designs on them I didn't like so I used the same technique Christina did on her Nestaboard.

This card is probably the biggest I ever made, it is 7"by 8", it is an Aperture card which means something as that of a window but using acetate sheets as opposed to glass. The chipboard behind the sentiment piece was covered in strips of paper leaving a gap between each one, then adding glitter, to find out more go to Christina's video highlighted above!

With this close up you are able to see the silver stickles I used on the small flowers on the card to give it a little more sparkle, also you can see the light reflecting of the acetate, the sentiment and chipboard is behind this piece, this will keep it protected. If you look close on the left side you will see a Hatpin! This was also created by Christina and low and behold she also has a video on how to make these!!! That is my next mission on top of learning about InLinkz!
