I am just loving the new products for May! Can you tell? I was so excited to work with Chalkboard Greetings, and of course wanted to create a chalkboard art card. I cut my Vertical Frame once from wood veneer and then again in Steel Grey. I stamped and embossed my sentiment on the Steel Grey card stock, and then used a sponge dauber to add white pigment ink to achieve the effect. Once that was dry I added a swirl (brave, aren’t I?) with my white colored pencil, and then played around for probably 30 mins trying to figure out what would work well in the space between “good” and “day”. I seriously tried 4 or 5 different things and then VOILA! Remembered we had an itty bitty sun in the Notched Tag Die-namics. I love it when I realize I have exactly what I need. I used Lemon Drop card stock to cut out my sun and popped it up on the main panel. Once I’d settled that debate, I cut a Chicken Wire Die-namics panel from Steel Grey card stock and then cut it to make a partial panel and adhered it to my card front using a Quickie Glue Pen. Then I added two Lemon Drop buttons, threaded of course, and my card was complete.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the amazing work our Designers have created for you, I know I’m inspired and can’t wait to get back in my craft room!
