This is the second masculine birthday card we made at the workshop I shared about yesterday.
I had been wanting to try the chalkboard technique that I've seen all over blogland and Pinterest so I tried it here. It can hardly be called a technique - it's so simple. All you do is heat emboss your stamped image with whisper white embossing powder on basic black card stock, then rub whisper white craft ink over it. I used a stampin' sponge on my stamp pad; I've read where some use a damp paper towel or just a tissue.
I used the new Honeycomb embossing folder from the Occasions Catalog. Love it! I made another little chalkboard for the inside and will use my white gel pen to sign the card.
