Saleabration Big Day Chalkboard Birthday Card from Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Sarah Poulton

Good morning and a very Happy Monday to you all.

Did you have a lovely weekend? What terrible weather we had yesterday! It poured down with rain on the Isle of Wight all day. Looks a bit better out there today. Might try and brave a trip to playgroup while its not raining. Although I did hear a mention of thunder snow on the news this morning. I would LOVE to see that ;0)

Today's crafty make was one of our class projects from Saturday. This card was inspired by a creation over on Nancy's blog. I love this multicoloured chalkboard style technique and the use of bright colours for a fun birthday card.

I started with a 10.5cm x 29.6cm base (scored at 14.8cm). I then cut a piece of the fabulous Stampin' Up! Irresistibly Yours Sale-A-Bration Paper sized 14.3cm x 10cm. I used a Stampin' Sponge to cover the paper in Daffodil Delight ink giving these fab bright stripes as a background.

To create the multicoloured chalkboard I wiped my small piece of Basic Black cardstock with my Embossing Buddy. I then heat embossed the sentiment and cake using White Stampin' Emboss powder. Once cooled you simply colour over your white embossing with whichever Blendabilities markers you would like. I used Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral.

I finished the card with two lengths of ribbon from the Sale-A-Bration Best Year Ever Accessory Pack and a Mini Metallic Clothespin. A lot less complicated than it looks.
