Chalkboard – just can’t get enough of it!


I’m lovin’ this NEW release from Printworks Collection!  The Chalk Greeting F4385 wood or cling,  combined with God Bless D4388 wood and Chalk Element E4386 wood or cling, for the main panel.  Then the Chevron Border G4361 wood or cling,  inked up in Printworks Holly Berry Red die ink on kraft card-stock… be still my heart!  lol


oh yes,  Must wrap in candy cane twine!  oh yes, Must have greenery!  Deck the Halls and down right festive!  I completely forgot to smudge on a little white ink for the chalky look!  oh well… got excited about actually finishing a card and posting it all in the same day! lol

The holly die is from the Tim Holtz lamp post die and the pine is from the Impression Obsession wreath set… I’ll link up at the very end of the post.


Love the holly and the ivy and that red sparkle!  I used my Perfect Layers Tools for the 1/16th inch mat. Link in the sidebar or below.


More NEW stamps on the inside… G4363 Frame Curls wood or cling, D4364 St. Francis Quote wood or clingand B4390 Merry Christmas wood or cling.

Then on the back, I like to use a couple Printworks stamps, Rubber Art wood and Stamped from the Heart wood.  I’ll sign my name and date when I send it.

  1. Awesome Pam…..I love the chevron. Everything looks so nice on the kraft paper. I should use it more (or should I say Crumb Cake). Love the chalk look so much!!! Thanks for sharing with us!

  2. Wish I had seen this card and supply list last month, it would have been my Christmas card for sure! Love everything about it,

  3. Delightful & festive card. Love the candy cane twine with all the holly and khaki. Found your youtube on the perfect layer rulers which I just received, and it was most helpful. Thanks for sharing such a pretty card, and it is the best ‘chalkboard’ card that I’ve seen to date. Actually I like it better ‘unsmudged’ I think. Also thought your chevrons were a great backdrop to the chalkboard & minimal matting.

  4. Oh, this one is a class winner, for sure! LOVE that chalkboard look. It’s really unique & very striking! What a great Xmas card this would be to go along with the teacher’s gift too! Awesome card! I’d give you an A++

  5. Khaki and red, after my heart !!! The card is soooooooo you. Love all the little embellishments you do to make the card beautiful !!

  6. Hi Pam I love the chalkboard look too. I keep trying to make one but haven’t figured out the right stamps or technique. You always make things look so easy.
    Hugs, Janie
