Blackboard cards look as if they were made with chalk. Yesterday, I hosted a blackboard technique birthday card making workshop. The ladies and I enjoyed a creative afternoon making a stack of beautiful cards.
In Melbourne, you will see many cafes and bakeries dotting every street, nook and cranny. Their A-frames with chalk handwritten menus is the inspiration for these blackboard cards.
I didn’t just want to straight up emboss but I also want to show the smear marks, just like when you rub off the markings on a chalkboard (without the fingernail sounds, remember those?) So, there is technique involved and you wouldn’t want to miss it.
There are so many possibilities with this technique. If you have a bullet journal, why not design a calendar using this technique. A scrapbook page layout will also look fabulous using this technique. You can also make a framed artwork to match your home decor.
What other projects do you have in mind? Will you be making gifts for family and friends? I’m curious to know so let me know prior to the class so I can brainstorm and give suggestions.
I’m looking forward to sharing this technique with you in class. Let me know so we can organise a suitable date and time. Please indicate this project so I know what you’re referring to.
Perhaps you already know this technique and would like to stock up on supplies. Check out the online store for products to help you in your card making.
Are you looking for other fun projects? Check out my events and book in. Bring along your friends too so you can share the experience.
