Chalkboard cards all the "rage"

This is the card we made at Hostess/Customer appreciation as well as the first stamp Club of the year. It uses the new "Hearts A Flutter" bundle-$36.95 for clear stamps and framelits-from the spring catalog. Each of the shapes on the banner except the small hearts punched is a framelit plus there is one more shape. The stamp set has stamps to match all the shapes as well as several of the small hearts. We also used the new vintage faceted buttons from pg 176, only $5.95 for 24 buttons in 3 different sizes.
The chalkboard effect uses white embossing and a bit of white sponged ink to look like chalkboard dust. I used my white watercolor pencil to add the border. You could get creative and "doodle". There are many examples that look like subway art, etc.
