Happy Friday!!! Today we are going to be coloring with the White Chalk Marker! These markers are fun to use on black cardstock for that chalkboard look but you can use them for other projects like this one too!!! I love getting out tools and using them for more projects than the typical use! So get out that Chalk Marker and let’s play!!!
For this card, I used a Crumb Cake card base! Then I took a piece of Cucumber Crush (5-1/4″ x 4″) and ripped the top and bottom. You just want to do little tears all along, rather than one long rip! Then I took another piece of Crumb Cake (5″ x 2-1/2″) and ripped the top and bottom of this piece as well. I stamped the Happy greeting from the Happy Celebrations Stampin’ Up Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink. After stamping the greeting, I used the White Chalk Marker and drew lines down each of the letters. I’m not the best at drawing and free-hand stuff so a simple line was enough for me but you could always decorate with dots, squiggles, or another design! I adhered this piece to the Cucumber Crush piece and then stamped the “Birthday to You” in Cucumber Crush Ink in the lower right corner! Then I added this piece to the card front! To finish it off, I wrapped some Linen Thread around the top and tied it into a knot. Linen Thread is the perfect embellishment for a man card!!! Simple and fabulous!!!
You could always mix up the colors to match the recipients favorite color or based on the gender! If you would like to check out other samples using the Happy Celebrations Stamp Set by clicking here and here! If you would like to see more ways to color with the Chalk Marker, click here and here!
