Finally! I'm getting my card made and posted for last week's Splitcoast stampers challenges. This is for the color challenge to use Real Red, Bermuda Bay and Kraft along with ledger paper for dessert. Also, Thursday's ways to use it was about using paint. I love to paint chipboard so I cut these letters out of lightweight chipboard with my Cricut and coarsely painted them. The card is 5 1/2" square.
- Letters: Plantin Schoolbook cartridge, Shadow letters 2". For the chipboard, I use 6 depth and maximum pressure settings.
- I painted most of the letters with a light coat of acrylic red paint then dabbed a bit more on in places. The chipboard had a little texture to it which helped the effect.
- The ribbon is stapled with the Tiny Attacher by Tim Holtz. I've had this for just a few weeks and know why now everyone raves about it. Perfect size for cards.
Ingredients: Stamps: Office Accruement, Congrats by Stampin' Up!
Ink: Bermuda Bay

Yup time does march on. My 4th and final son will be graduating from HS next week. Definitely an "age moment in life".
Your next one is being invited to your friend's children's WEDDINGS! heheh
