We Chair-ish You!

Hello, my dears! Here's a card I created today for Cath's Three Cheers for Chairs Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. I used my Silhouette to cut out this vintage chair from black cardstock. I gave the chair a modern twist by re-upholsterying it using a text "fabric" courtesy of a Papertrey Ink stamp. The upholstery is lifted off the card with foam tape.

I created the sentiment on my computer. Since the ink was still wet when it came off the printer, I was able to sprinkle clear embossing powder on it and use my heat gun. Cool!

The button is threaded with a thin strip of Melon Mambo paper.

Thanks for stopping by!
