The Chai in Tea puts the Happy in Me Card by Ava Gavloski

Hello and Welcome to Southern Ridge Trading Company.
Ava here to share a jewel tone green and gold card to cheer on St. Patrick’s Day.

I am super happy with the great presentation of this card.  
Truly showcases the WOW factor that Southern Ridge Trading Co.’s chipboard can create on this card front.


I had lots of fun testing the 2 tone effect on this chipboard piece.  
This is a new release in the store.

Let start with a few quick steps to get this chipboard prepared for the card base.


Ink up the frame and use a little water on the paint brush to smooth out the colour.


Ink up the tea pot and tea cup and smooth out the colour again with water and paint brush.
Then ink up the sentiment with VersaMark I used a  VersaMark pen and pad.
Sprinkle some gold embossing powder on the sentiment and heat set.


Once the embossing powder has cooled, start to assemble the card.

Adhere the sentiment panel over the frame chipboard and adhere all to a green card stock mat.
