This week’s Midweek Throwdown from Operation Write Home is to make a chalkboard card. I must admit that this style of card is not really my cup of tea – generally I’m not so much about distressed or ‘messy’ looking things, but I think this one turned out alright even if it is rather simple.
This time it was the Silhouette to the rescue once again. The card uses three Silhouette files – Frame Leaf (Design ID #12642), One & Only (Design ID #37415) and a flourish by Rachel Erler Miller which is either no longer be available in the Silhouette Store or I got her design somewhere else and imported it into my software, but I can’t locate a source any longer … sorry. Then I took a bit of white chalk, lightly colored over the black area and then wiped it with a cloth to give it the look of a chalkboard that had been erased a time or two.
Have a terrific day!
