Good morning folks,
Just two more days to go for this month's challenge to end. I hope you guys have had the chance to see the many examples of handmade embellishments showcased by the team. I am here to add one more to the lot.
I saw a card somewhere with a Chalkboard on it that was so perfect and I thought, how did someone make that??? Then I realised, that it was a part of the Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp but the thought stuck with me. I wanted to make a card with a chalkboard on it and since Teacher's day is just a week away, I thought it would be great to do that!
So I decided to make a chalkboard on my own using a little piece of black card stock, a few ice-cream sticks and lots of Glossy accents. Even though it may not have been as perfect as the one I saw, I am quite pleased with how it turned out! It barely took a few minutes. Plus, it was super easy. It's something you can make with your kids for their teachers.:D
I wanted to use Patterned paper, but was dying to try out the Chevron background stamp from Hero Arts, so tossed the PP idea into the bin. I also added a little zig zag washi tape (keeping in line with the Chevron) and some twine.
Here's how the card turned out.
As usual, I have a video for you on how I made this. Here it is..
