Got chipboard??

Hi everyone and welcome to another Made Especially for you Monday challenge!! For our challenge this week, the DT had to make a father's day card using chipboard.

  Our sponser this week is Priscilla Styles - http://priscillastyles-store.blogspot.com/
and they are giving one lucky winner a  $10 gift certificate to the store
How awesome!! They have some really cute images to choose from:)

       Now, I didn't have any "manly" chipboard pieces to use for my card.  The only thing I had was one that had "princess" on it, I didn't really think that any of  the men in my family would really want one with that on it lol. Since, I don't really buy many chipboard pieces.... or any for that matter. I decided to make my own. I had plain chipboard on hand that I had used for a previous project and decided why not make my own:)
     It was really easy to do. I had the handy man cricut lite cart and decided I wanted to use the circular saw image. I cut out all the pieces for it and then I cut out the shadow piece on the chipboard and a gray piece of cardstock. I inked up the edges with vintage photo and then glued the gray piece to the chipboard and sanded the edges a little. I then added the other extra pieces on top and...tadaa I had a manly chipboard piece.
    I liked it so much that I decided to make three circles out of the chipboard and covered them the same way then just stamped the D.A.D on top of them with my MS alphabet stamp set. I then wanted to add a sentiment to it ...so I came up with something and just printed it out with my computer on to some cardstock and cut it into a banner to add to the bottom of the card.
That's it. Really simple and easy! So come on over to MEFY and enter your father's day card using chipboard. The rest of the DT did an awesome job with their cards :)   Looking forward to seeing your entry in the challenge!
