Youngster Greeting Card

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny dropping in to share a greeting card I created with some of my new favorite chippies from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.

Isn't this a fun whimsical card? I love the bright colors and cheerful image.
I thought since this was a more retro than vintage card I might change up my usual doily for this super cool rotary element. It still creates the perfect base and frame for the flowers...but in a more modern interpretation.
I've also brought in this new Chevron Frame to anchor the corner and the Deco Star for added detail.
Of course I still love my layers so spacers are added to provide depth and dimension.

Here's how I altered the chipboard....

After I selected the chipboard pieces for this project I wiped them down to prepare them for altering.
The stars are finished with silvery embossing powder and heat set for a sparkly effect.  The chevron frame is sectioned off to fit the card size and the top has more embossing powder but this time in chartreuse.  The rotary element has flat white acrylic paint.
I used the clipped off section of the frame to help support the layer that was added to the top. .

Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts~Chevron Frame (coming soon), Deco Stars, Rotary Dials (coming soon)

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G
