Thursday's Challenge - Altered Chipboard

Hi everyone,

Ready for a Thursday challenge?

My challenge to you is to alter some chipboard and use it on a layout or card.

There are so many things you can do with chipboard……

You could try running it between an embossing folder through your cuttlebug, then use ink, rub-n-buff, glimmermist etc to give it some colour.

Why not cover with paper or material.

You can also try colouring it and then stamping and using embossing powders.

Punch some holes and put eyelets or studs on it.


This is a card we did for a class last week using a piece of chipboard, some of you may still have it, as it was in a designer kit awhile ago.

I covered it with paper, then on the back side of it, slit the petals, then flicked them upwards on the front. Love how it turned out...oops the punched edge doesn't show up that well on the pic...if much better IRL..honest.

There are so many things you could do, please have a play and put your end results in the gallery for us all to get some ideas. Please tell us what you have done with your chipboard.

Look forward to seeing what you do,
take care,
