12 Days of Christmas! I have been seeing a lot of the chalkboard look on cards and layouts. Close To My Heart is on board with this trend too. In the newest Idea Book, you can purchase sheets of adhesive-backed chalkboard vinyl and use their chalk marker or real chalk. It is a really fun technique. I did not have these particular items on hand, so I decided to make my own version with what I had in my craft room. I used Black cardstock and White Daisy pigment ink for the stamping. I had some old Decorative Chalks and sponged white chalk around the stamps. So...there are different ways to achieve this HOT new trend. I found this card on Dawn McVey's blog and changed it a bit. I thought this was a perfect themed card to give out to someone during the holidays. Okay...one more day to go. I just might have to start posting more...I really have been enjoying these last several days. I hope to see you all back tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by. :)
