I've been wanting to do another chalkboard technique card. I bought this set of Christmas stamps from Taylored Expressions a while back thinking they would be perfect - and they didn't disappoint! The challenge over at Just Us Girls this week happened to be using the chalkboard technique, so that was great.
The background paper I had already had that chalkboard feel to it. After I embossed the red paper, I decided to sponge a bit of the white pigment ink on the raised holly image to continue the chalkboard feel onto that piece as well, as you can see below.
After adding the ribbon, I cut out the holly leaves, adding an extra layer in the center and finishing it off with fun gemstones.
I always like to add something to the inside of the card - so I stamped the same holly leaves inside.
