Embossed Chalkboard Christmas Card.

4:28:00 PM

Creating beautiful Christmas cards do not have to cause you headaches anymore. To be honest I am not sure what we used to do without our Cuttlebug machines and embossing folders, do you?
For this quick card I used this beautiful and versatile Ultimate Crafts embossing folder together with my Cuttlebug to create a quick and striking card for the festive season.

Here’s how I created my card
Use your Cuttlebug and embossing folder and emboss the image twice on two pieces of white cardstock.
Use red chalk paint and a sponge applicator and lightly paint over the embossed raised areas of the one embossed card.
On the second embossed card, use black chalk paint and a sponge applicator and paint the entire image using the black paint – make sure the entire surface is covered in paint. Leave to dry thoroughly.
Use a small piece of regular white chalk and with the flat side scribble all over the black painted embossed panel.
Use a cloth or your finger tip to burnish the chalk over the entire surface. This will soften the look of the chalk and also give the black paint that traditional chalk board look.
    Optional: use a fixative to seal the chalkboard background
    Cut up the red painted embossed panel and use foam tape to raise some of the elements on the chalk board card.
Matt the panel onto green cardstock, add a strip of washi tape and then sew around the edges of the panel to add texture and finish off the look. Add diamante, buttons and ribbon bows to finish off your card.
Here’s to making a quick embossed chalkboard Christmas card in a few minutes using the Cuttlebug and all those beautiful embossing folders.
