Nina B - Chalkboard Birthday

Hi All,

I have a birthday card today.  I'm using a Nina B set "Chalkboard Birthday"  which is available through The Craft's Meow.  

This is a really simple card.  I stamped the sentiment with PTI Vintage Cream ink, a pigment ink.  A great ink, it looks chalky and you can see I smeared it a bit, but I think that is OK considering I was going for a chalkboard look.

The patterned paper is from Pebbles "Walnut Grove".  Love the banner pattern.  Cardstock is PTI True Black, Kraft and Pure Poppy.  The Pure Poppy panel is popped and so is the chalkboard sentiment.  I added a twill loop accent to finish the card.

I made this card with several people in mind, a couple teachers and one childhood friend whom I played "school" with all the time. We had a black slate chalkboard in the basement.  A fun childhood memory. :)

Happy Birthday Debbie!  Your card is in the mail. :D
