Chalkboard Easel

Hello everyone.  Welcome to another card share here at Mrs. Lincolns Inkin.

Today's card is the Chalkboard Easel.  Now, some of you may have already seen the Chalkboard Technique and this is that technique just on a chalkboard, lol.  Cute huh?  Another great thing about this cute little easel is that it can still fit into a standard size envelope.  YAY!!!

The making of this card is actually quite simple.  Start out with a piece of card stock, i chose Early Espresso, and cut it at 4 1/4" x 11" then score at 5 1/2".  That gives you a normal size card.  Then, just measure and cut from the bottom to get your "legs" of your easel.  That's it! Easy-piecey!!

For my "chalkboard" i used a piece of Basic Black, again, that i just kind of eyeballed to get the size that i wanted, and then i framed it with a piece of Very Vanilla, sponged with just a tad of the Early Espresso.  The stamp set that i used is the fabulous From My Heart set.  I heat embossed this with my Whisper White Embossing Powder and then lightly, with a paper towel, wiped over my image with some Whisper White Craft ink to give the board kind of a used/dirty look.  Here is a closer look at the featured set used today:

That's all for today.  Make sure to check back tomorrow for my Friday Video!! Until then....
