Chalkboard for Making Cards



This is the first, and my favourite, of three cards I made for Making Cards magazine using the Craftwork Cards Chalkboard set.. I love this set and they make really effective cards. The bicycle is printed on the paper so I added some flowers made with Lea'bilitie dies and added pearls to the flowers on the bike. The tag and bow are part of the kit and I threaded the tag with baker's twine.


For this one I added some ribbon, baker's twine and pearls. The bicylce was made with a Marianne die and the flowers, sentiment and butterfly are from the kit.

And finally


 I used two papers and a sentiment from the kit, added a butterfly cut using two Memory Box dies and some pearls.

It's my day for selling my cards and gifts at the hospital today so an early start for me today.
