CFC84--Chalkboard Thanks


CASual Fridays' first challenge of the year is to create a clean and simple thank you card. 
After seeing all the awesome cards using the chalkboard technique, 
I decided to give it a try. Here's my card.


Betsy Veldman started sharing her chalkboard cards last year
and has a great easy-to-follow video tutorial here.
One stamp and four drawn lines and my card was done.

I only wish I had some greenish cardstock so this wasn't
 a black thank you card. But I had fun trying the technique!

I'll also be entering my first Make it Monday over at Papertrey Ink
since I used their limited edition thank you stamp on my card.

  13. Oh my gosh, this is spooky, I wanted to try the chalk board technique and got out this stamp to make a card that looked like this in my head. But its stayed on my desk and I haven't had a chance to make it yet, then I saw this! At least I know it'll look fab when I try it! ;-)
