Beautiful Chalk Board Cards

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing these beautiful Chalk Board Cards.

I was inspired by the beautiful one my Mum made last year. I’ve had this card displayed in my craft room for ages and kept thinking I should do a tutorial.

Mum said she was inspired by some she saw on Pinterest, so when I had a look I saw a beautiful one by Inking Idaho, so I’ve combined the 2 and made these ones.

 

 

I’ve made a 6 x 6 and 5 x 7 version, so you have the option. I love both sizes and will definitely be making these again. You have space on the back to stamp and write your message.

Chalk Board Cards

These will fit into a standard envelope, however if you add the dimension like I have then you will need to pop them into one of my Box Envelopes here.

I used the Papercraft Society Kit 20 to decorate these along with my Woodgrain stencil.

I’m keeping the Purple one for a little longer as I’m a little attached to that one!
