Celebrate with Cake

Hi Crafty Friends!  There's more to celebrate...another fun card featuring Blendabilities and our NEW! Chalkboard Paper!  OMG!  Let me just say that I'm in LOVE with this new Chalkboard Paper!  

Why, you ask?  Because it's smooth as silk but is also a nice, heavy weight.  You can use both our new ColorBox Chalk Ink Pads on the smooth side and our White Craft Stampin' Ink Pad on the other side.  I love a versatile product!  

Anyway, I made this Celebrate with Cake Card using our Big Day Stamp Set (a FREE Sale-a-Bration item), Chalkboard PaperColorBox Chalk Ink Pad, and some Blendabilities.

Using the sketch below, I started making my background by stamping the cake in Yellow Citrus ColorBox Chalk Ink onto Chalkboard Paper.  

I then stamped and colored my sentiment using Daffodil DelightPumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo Blendabilities.  I was very pleased with the outcome, so I kept going.

Finally, I mounted my sentiment onto Basic Black Cardstock, tied on some Melon Mambo 1/4" Cotton Ribbon, and mounted my chalkboard paper card front onto some Basic Blask Cardstock. 

 I didn't stick to the sketch to the letter, but I love how this card turned out.

I am really proud of my new Blendabilities skills!  They have come a long way, baby.  I can't wait to play with these markers lots more!

Well, that's all for today, folks.  You will find all of the products I used to create this card below.  Order what you need by going to my Online Store or click any of the links to go right to that item.
