I love the fun chalkboard look of these, and they will look fabulous on your wrapped presents.
If you’ve never done the chalkboard technique before, it’s really quite easy.
- cut a piece of black cardstock to the size of your choice
- stamp your image in VersaMark Ink and sprinkle with White Embossing Powder
- heat set the embossing powder with the Heat Tool
- once cool, randomly sponge on some Whisper White Craft Ink to mimic chalkboard eraser marks
- embellish as desired
To create the frame around my chalkboard I inked up the Hardwood stamp with Baked Brown Sugar Ink and stamped it on Baked Brown Sugar cardstock. Then it was simply a matter of cutting my stamped image in to strips and glueing them around my chalkboard.
A showstopping tag can really make a mediocre wrapping job go unnoticed, so keep that in mind when you are wrapping up your holiday gifts. 🙂
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I love being able to share my creativity with you.
Now let’s hop on over to Barbara to see what she’s created. I know she’ll wow us!
