Simple Chalkboard Card

I found the perfect font for making chalkboard cards!  I'm really excited because I love the Chalkboard trend, but want to be able to spell what I'd like.  It's the Hero Arts set called Sketchbook Letters.  I picked it up at my local Archiver's and I'm in love.  I used the ColorBox chalk ink in Popcorn to do all the stamping.  Then I used that same ink with a sponge and made some soft white marks all around to make it look like a well used board.

For the background I used Hero Arts Woodgrain background stamp on some Kraft Cardstock.

I used my Corner Chomper on the 1/4 inch setting on all the corners for this card.

This was simple and quick to put together!  I can't wait to try this font  in black on some white cardstock for the more sketchy effect too :)
