Just a quick post to share my first chalkboard card. :)
The My Mind's Eye Chalk Studio paper pads were on my wish list for a while and I finally picked all three of them up at Winner's recently! What a great find! The papers are so cute and are great for girl or guy cards.
The happy sentiment is from JustRite's Birthday Vintage Labels Four stamp set. The chalkboard paper was cut using Spellbinders Labels Thirty One and under the label is a piece of vellum die cut from Spellbinders Floral Ovals. The sweet doily is Cheery Lynn's French Pastry. The pink banner was embossed using a Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder.
The card has the MME paper on all four sides and it looks great. (I really need to get in the habit of applying paper, or die cuts or embellishments on on four sides). The inside is another die cut from Spellbinders Thirty One and stamped swirls from the JR birthday set. All background paper was die cut using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A.
Before I go, I would like to give a huge kudos to Spellbinders for their matting dies. When I first saw the matting sets I wondered why I would buy a set of matting dies when I can just cut rectangular paper easily on a cutter. Eventually, I ended up getting a set to try out and I am now using it all of the time. My matting paper is always cut perfectly, no measuring, no mistakes and it cut down on my cutting time. Fabulous idea, Spellbinders!
Thanks so much for stopping by! "Have a Lovely Day"!
