PTI MIM ~ 2011 A la Carte!

Hello friends! I have a sweet card today that I've made for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday. This week is A la Carte; choosing one of the 2011 MIM techniques that we didn't have a chance to try. Having a go at making my own thick chipboard accent (as demonstrated in the MIM#34 video by Erin Lincoln)  was quite easy and very fun!


I started by covering my card with this delightful paper from Basicgrey. I think I bought a few sheets of this a couple of years ago. It's such a sweet pattern with the prettiest colors. Next I added an ivory die cut Worn Greetings label from MFT with the matching die cut oval using some Authentique paper. My Simple Sunflower from PTI was die cut 4 times ~ 3 from thin cardboard and 1 from cardstock. I used their new Autumn Rose ink (so pretty!) to stamp my sunflower and a lighter pink chalk ink (Rouge) for the center. I pierced a hole in my homemade chipboard element and attached my PTI tiny tag die cut with a glitzy brad.

That about does it...hope you like it! Have a beautiful day ~Lisa

Oh, cute! Those are some lovely colors and patterns you've got there. I used that same PTI set and die back when I did this MIM challenge! It's such a versatile set. Love your tiny heart punched from the tag!

OK- so your stamping on the die cut looks perfect!! I must definitely be doing something wrong!
So many of those videos I missed thru the year. I should go and review them.
Beautiful card- so springy and fresh :)

So, so pretty, I love it! I think that Simple Sunflower die and the stamp set are some of my absolute favorites, ever. You've made it so pretty here, and I love the papers you've paired it with, and that Tiny Tag is adorable. So sweet. ;-)

Pretty card. Making the chipboard is easy since erin showed us how. Love it. The sunflower stamped in autumn rose is very becoming.
