Today I have a post it note easel card. The Chalk It Up paper has a school theme to it so I thought why not a Back to School design to the easel card.
When putting the card together I was having some issues with the White ink, for some reason it was just not working with me, then after stamping the image I flipped the cardstock over to glue it and smeared the ink as there were a few ink blobs on the cardstock. Normally I would have redone the stamping but for this project with the chalkboard look to it, I kind of liked the smeared look and thought it made it look like a real chalkboard, so I decided to leave it. Sometimes mess up do work out.
anyway the frame to my chalkboard is make with kraft cardstock and a wood grain stamp.
I got this idea from another CTMH consultant that made a chalkboard card and I have to apologize because I dont remember her name, I like to give credit where I can, but I saw it on Facebook and couldn't find it again to give her the credit.
I found the directions for the post it easel card on a YouTube video again I want to give the Credit where its due. I did my own version of the card she posted.
