Dear Dad Card

I've been wanting to play with some of the On-Board Chipboard since chipboard is the special from Stampin' Up! this month. It's been laying around my craft room for quite awhile, and I finally got around to making something with it! I thought this piece with the circles would work great to make my dad a Father's Day card. The circles were perfect for putting photos behind.

The small heart in the center is also from some chipboard, and done in the faux metal technique. Faux metal is easy to do, just cover the chipboard with VersaMark ink. Next cover it with embossing powder and heat. You repeat this at least 2 more times until the embossing powder seems to "dance" around on the surface. While it's still wet, you can choose to stamp onto it with a stamp that was first inked with VersaMark.
