Yes, it’s simple as that – just get some 12×12 frames and put the printed cardboard in!
As easy and straightforward the idea is, the results are awesome!
SCRAPBOOK AND… FRAME IT
I couldn’t stop myself and had to try scrapbooking on the cardboard.
It’s perfect for some mixed media fun: it has a texture on its own, takes wet media like nothing else and doesn’t warp!!!
In one word – AWESOME!
Now all you need to do is… frame it!
HANDMADE CARDS – THREE WAYS
I thought cards… yeah, why not!
I decided to try one base cardboard in 3 different ways…
Random spray with a glimmer mist, Architextures Tall Base and a couple of stickers that match the theme – that’s all you need to make an arty looking card.
With no wet media – using 3 Architextures products: fussy cut rub-on hand, alphas from the Stash Paque and a tea cup from Trinkets. Still pretty cool, right?!
This time, I sprayed some serious colour on the top half of the base, covered the bottom part with a torn off American Vintage paper and added a vintage bicycle from Architextures Treasures. Alphas from the Stash Paque turned the card into a nice message to someone you’ve missed.
SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT… DIFFERENT
I also wanted to try the cardboard for something more… dark and grungy.
First thing to do was to create a ‘dirty’ base – Naturally Aged Kit Peeled Paint was perfect for that.
Despite layers and layers of paint, you can still see the screen printed circles underneath.
I didn’t want to cover the base too much so I added stamping around the area I was going to work on, then Short Base Wings overplayed with Colour Washed MDF wings.
That was a perfect! perfect! surrounding for a slightly creepy face and loads of little clusters of black and green mini-stones.
Not too bad for a simple 12×12 piece of cardboard!!!
Don’t forget about our CONTEST!!!

With the printed cardboard, I’d probably make journal covers or a storge box, like this this one here that I made of mat board:
