100_5883       The chalkboard technique is presently one of the hottest trends in the market.  It is such an easy look to achieve and it certainly packs that “WOW” factor! 

100_5879     For this card, I paired the technique with the use of the Delicate Details Lace Tape as a stencil, as well as using the Simply Scored Borders Scoring Plate as a stencil for the accent around the sentiment.  I, also, designed this as a Z-fold card.  The butterflies are layered with the Creped Filter Paper and punched using the Elegant Butterfly punch.  Add the bling (Basic Jewel – Rhinestones) and pack a little more “WOW” onto the card. 

*Tip:  When punching the Creped Filter Paper, layer it onto scrap paper or cardstock and punch them together.  The filter paper is simply too fibrous and tends to pull and tear in the punch.  By layering onto other paper, it punches through cleanly.100_5881

     I know…I packed a ton of “WOW” into this one little card.  Sometimes, you have to.  There are only so many hours in a day.  Seriously though, we did this at stamp club and it was the perfect card to show this many different techniques :)  Thanks for stopping in.  I hope you have been inspired to give at least one of these techniques a try.
