Chalkboard Technique Birthday Card for a Friend

Chalkboard Technique Birthday Card

I’ve loved chalkboards (I called them blackboards) since I was a girl, so I can’t get enough of making these chalkboard cards! This chalkboard birthday card I made for my friend (and now that I know she received it, I can show it to you!). I got the idea of using the beautiful Framed Tulips Embossing Folder #121809 as a frame for the “chalkboard” online but the card I personalized for my friend. Just stamp with Versamark Ink #102283, emboss with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder #109132 using the new Heat Tool #129053, and my favorite part, rub a little White Craft Ink #101731 on the background with a soft cloth or a sponge (lightly) to give it the look of a real chalkboard with dust!! If you want, you can draw some border lines around the edges with a white Watercolor Crayon or one of the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils or any white pencil.

I used several stamp sets on this card!

The cute Pool Party button is from a Ribbon & Button Pack (Sycamore Street) #130812 in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure, which you can get FREE with a $50 purchase! The tiny little paper banner is also available FREE from Sale-A-Bration in the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper pack #127540. You can even get both the designer paper and the Ribbon & Button Pack, plus the coordinating Madison Avenue Stamp Set FREE in a BUNDLE if you host a $400 party! Just get some friends to order with you and you might be able to take advantage of that bundle and lots more for being a hostess!
