Chalk Board Easel with a Birthday Twist

How about this for a super cute, and honestly, a super quick birthday card.  Today’s card is for one of my work friends, Larry.  He enjoys all the cards I make but I think he might like this one the best.  Here’s my card.

I used Sahara Sand as the card base stamped with Baked Brown Sugar using the Hardwood background stamp.  I cut out the ‘legs’ using my Deco Label framelits, the next to the largest size was perfect for the easel look I was going for.

Chalk board paper plays the key role here with Citrus Chalk ink stamped on it.  The image is from Balloon Bash.  I stamped it again on Whisper White with Blackberry Bliss and snipped out the banner. I thought I was done at that point but in looking at it felt it needed ‘more’ so I used several designs from the Moonlight paper stack to create an ittty bitty banner with my itty bitty banner punch.

Don’t forget the inside.  I stamped the inside with Blackberry Bliss and the candles from Balloon Bash stamp set.

  1. Love it, Lynn! What a great use of this stamp and the other products to make the chalkboard. Larry will love it, too!

  2. I like your card a lot. I especially like that the banner is NOT perfectly aligned. I can’t ever get things lined up perfectly, and its so good to see others that this happens to. It makes it easier to accept our limitations when we see others are human too! Keep up the good work!

    • Kelly, I’m glad you noticed the banner. I figure real life banners are never straight, why should our paper ones be?

      Thanks for visiting my blog
      Happy Stamping.
