Paint chip card in pictures

I thought I'd give a quick picture tutorial on how to make an easy paint chip card.


 Obtain a paint chip from the local hardware store.  This is a True Value brand paint chip card.

Look! How nice of them to tell you what color to use for the card base.  I chose Bravo Burgundy to match their suggested compliment color.

Assemble a sentiment (mine is from All Holidays), some embossing powder and VersaMark (you could just regular stamp the words too).  Grab a background stamp (Off the Grid) and matching ink.  Stamp and emboss the A2 card base as you please.

Punch out your butterflies (or whatever floats your boat) and adhere to the card with double-sided tape.

Not too bad for a quick card!  I did try stamping with Staz-On before punching the butterflies.  The Staz-on smeared and I had to sacrifice the whole paint chip card.  The paint chip cards are a bit shiny and are hard to stamp on so if you choose to stamp the butterflies out with Papillion Potpourri make sure you don't smear and let it completely dry before punching. Have fun! - Heidi
