Cricut Art Philosophy Chalkboard Card

Hello, friends!

Cricut Art Philosophy Chalkboard card

Today, I have the last card that I made using the Circus alphabet. It is made using the Art Philosophy cartridge. This was my first venture into the chalkboard effect. I really like how it turned out though.

To do this, you will need: Black cardstock, dryer sheet, Versamark Ink, White Embossing powder, A craft heater, stamps, White Daisy ink, and a paper towel. 

1 - rub a dryer sheet on the surface of your balck cardstock. (this helps prevent strays when heat embossing)

2 - Stamp your desired image on the black cardstock using the Versa Mark ink. 

3 - Sprinkle your embossing powder over the stamped image. 

4 - Using your craft heater, heat embossing powder.

5 - Using a paper towel and your White daisy ink, start rubbing white ink on your image. Start with a small amount and add more as you go. Remember, it is easier to add more than to take away, so go slow.

Like the popular chalkboard look. Like the embellishments; especially the flourishes. I used a Hero Arts chalkboard stamp recently and like the look.

I saw this card on your weekend roundup post and I had to come over to check out how you created it. The chalkboard look stands out so great on cards and I like how you paired it with the pretty pastels. The heart jewel in the center is a nice touch along with the swirls of pearls to go with the gift bag. Even the inside is so pretty and finished with so much care to details.
Thank you so much for sharing these great ideas! Very inspiring. :)

Love the card and thanks for sharing the technique. I have seen stickers and other embellishments but none were quite what I wanted, this means I can make just what I want! Thanks again!
