This is a Little Chalkboard Card I made which can be adapted to suit so many occasions.
The card will fit very nicely inside the Stampin' Up new medium sized envelope though
you could easily alter the size to fit your requirements.
I have upon request tried my best to give measurements to help you make your own
Little Chalkboard Card but this is the first time I have posted instructions so please email me
if you require any more information.
The card measures 28cm x 9cm. Score at 14cm and fold in half.
The Blackboard part of the card measures 7cm x 9cm and the
wood frame is made from 1cm strips, four of which are 14cm long
and four which are 7cm long.
The long 14cm strips form the vertical uprights of the board and are glued
to the outside edges of the card.
The smaller 7cm strips form the horizontal cross member pieces and these are glued
one at the top and at 10cm further down on the front and back of the card.
This will leave a small rectangle at the bottom of the
card (3cm x 7cm)
of both sides which is to be cut out and discarded.
I have used the 1/16th" (2mm) Circle Handheld Punch
to punch a hole in the middle of all four of the 1cm uprights at
10.5 cm down to thread either Linen Thread or Bakers Twine.
Here is a list of Stampin' Up items I have used to make my Little Chalkboard Card not including the bunting/banner across the top:
New Stampin' Strimmer
Basic Black Card
Naturals Ivory Card
Classic Stampin Pad: Crumb Cake
Stampin' Emboss Powder: White
Stampin' Around Wheel: Timber
Stamp-a-ma-jig (my hero product)
Stamp Set: Amazing Family
Linen Thread or Bakers Twine
You can use any stamp set that will fit the dimensions above or adapt it as I have done
for other projects.
There are so many ways to embellish it, I have used the Petite Curly Label,
which you can have free by placing an order of just £45.
I have used the Stampin' Around Wheel 'Timber' seen above on the
right but you can also use the large 'Woodgrain' Stamp.
I hope this has been of some help if you want to make one of these Little Chalkboard Cards.
