JAI #227: Just Add Chipboard


Oh boy, theses Fridays are really sneaking up on me!  Time for another Just Add Ink Challenge. This week Chantell has challenged us to add chipboard to our creations.  When I use chipboard it's typically for a mini album cover, not as a feature on a card, so I decided to try something new and use it as a feature.

If you're not sure what chipboard is, it's really just the heavier cardboard that is sometimes used in crafting.  I use the backing board from my Glimmer Paper packs to die cut shapes from.  In this case though I have used some thinner chipboard that I have cut using the new Party Pennants Bigz die.  I used the thinner stuff because I wanted to emboss it as well.  I used the new Large Polka Dot embossing folder.  Just be careful not to force the sandwich through your Big Shot - you don't want to ruin your machine!

I'm still loving the new Blendabilities and had lots of fun colouring the new Bundled Baby stamp set.

Another little cute baby for the inside to finish off the card.

I hope you can play along with us at Just Add Ink - I'm sure you've got some chipboard (or something similar) you can use in your stash!

Bye for now,



  1. Tina this is such a sweet card, I love that little baby in the carriage and layered on the doily it's lovely. So glad to hear you're loving your blendies.

  2. How clever! I would never of thought to emboss chipboard. Love that you do the inside of cards!

  3. Embossed chipboard - well who's a clever little chooky! So adorable this card. Thanks Tina, I now need that baby set! ;)
