Chalkboard Style Thanks For A Great Year!

Chalkboard Style Thanks For A Great Year!
I am starting to make some thank you cards for my daughter's teachers since the end of the school is coming up. Here is my first card!


Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Sketch Challenge - SSS232

I adopt the simple sketch from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Sketch Challenge - SSS232 as shown above.

Close-up : Chalkboard style sentiment
I decided to make a chalkboard style card using the very popular now chalkboard technique. I been longing to try this chalkboard technique and now is the chance! Furthermore, this card is for teacher even though nowadays most of the schools has changed to use whiteboard. The sentiment is stamped onto a black card stock and heat emboss. There is some smudges on the sentiment during heat emboss but guess what. It makes the whole thing look more chalkboard like as there is no right or wrong about it! More 'chalkboard look' is add on to it by smudging some white ink onto it. The whole chalkboard is stamped on a white card stock and the board edges are colored accordingly. The black board is attached onto the chalkboard accordingly.

Three (3) pattern papers are trimmed accordingly and attached onto a cream card base as in sketch. The chalkboard is attached onto the card using pop dots to give some dimension.

Dimension : 10.16cm x 15.24cm or 4" x 6"
Type : Vertical fold
Inlay : None

If you would like to have a similar design of these items or individual item, please fill up the custom order form here. Please do include the color or theme you prefer, purpose of the item(s) (farewell, retirement, birthday and etc) and message (if any).
