Chalkboard Birthday Card
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! The chalkboard look seems to have taken the crafting world by storm. Today’s chalkboard birthday card capitalizes on that trend, and throws a fun ribbon banner treatment into the mix.
Now that looks like a celebration, doesn’t it? The focal image and paper are from the Chalkboard paper pack and the wonderful ribbon is green Center Stitch Burlap from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I just looped it around the brads on either side of the focal, tied the ends with gold embroidery thread and “Ta-Da” ! Instant birthday banner!
The inside has a fun little surprise tucked in.
Yup. It’s a little birthday tag tucked into the side pocket and topped with more of that delicious center stitch burlap ribbon! The pocket is a cinch to make. This paper is double-sided, so when I measured it, I just added 2 inches onto the width, scored the paper, folded it over and glued just the top and bottom edge. Instant pocket!
I love to make these for friends, neighbors, co-workers…really any time I want to give a little “something” instead of a big gift. The tag can be used as a bookmark, or to decorate an office cubicle. This chalkboard birthday card becomes the gift, especially when you tuck in an individually wrapped chocolate! It’s a party in a card!
That’s it for me today folks! I hope you have a fabulous day.
Thanks for stopping by!
