The Chalkboard Craze – by Michelle Woerner

Have you gone there yet — doing all the fun things with the so popular chalkboard look?  I’ve been very intrigued with this look and LOVE the stamps being designed to fit right in with this craze.  However, I must say I am head over heels in {{{LOVE}}} with Michelle’s very clean interpretation of the chalkboard look on this trio of cards.  Simply done with minimal embellishments — absolutely PERFECT!!!


Michelle stamped her sentiments onto black cardstock, white embossed them, decorated beneath them with chalkboard style washi tape, and added a few flowers and bling to set them off.  Fabulously done!  I might add these cards are small and  measure 4 1/4″ x 3 1/2″.


Here’s a closer look at one of the cards.

You can see Michelle’s blog post here.
