CAS-ual Fridays Re-Do

So the more I looked at my first card for the CAS-ual Fridays Chipboard Challenge, the more and more I didn’t like it! LOL! So I decided to do a re-do. This time I made my own chip board. Here is my re-do,

DSCN2306I really wanted to use my Trendy Tree Tops dies (they are so stinkin’ cute! I heart Maile Belles and her WHOLE Stamping Simply line!) So to make my own chip board I ripped off a flap from and old maxi pad box (I new saving those thin cardboard boxes would come in handy, hahaha πŸ™‚ ) I covered it with two different pattern papers and then rolled them through my trusty BigKick. It took several passes, but they came out pretty cute. πŸ˜‰ I took the tree trunk and also ran it through my Texture Boutique with a wood grain embossing folder so it would look more like a tree trunk. πŸ™‚

Hope you like this one better, I do! LOL!
