Faux Chalkboard by Tracey Cooley

Hi Creators

Tracey here back with another CHA Creation.... Chalkboard is all the rage at the moment and the Couture Creations Wrapped In Joy 5x7 Christmas Carols Embossing Folder is perfect for Faux Chalkboard.

 
This look is so simple to achieve all you need is some black cardstock, Christmas Carols Emboss Folder and a white gel pen.
Cut a 5"x7" card base from black cardstock and set aside. Cut a 4.75"x6.75" mat from black cardstock and emboss with Couture Creations Wrapped In Joy Christmas Carol Emboss Folder.
 

 
Then simply trace around all aspects of the embossed image with a white gel pen. Adhere your embossed and traced mat to your card base and then to blend it in trace around the edge of the mat.
I know that I have shown you this technique before but it is so simple and so effective but I really wanted to show you it with this particular Embossing Folder.
 
Below is the same technique with the A2 Christmas Lyrics Embossing Folder only I reversed the colours.. but I have first stamped it with a script stamp before removing my cardstock from the Folder after embossing then traced the edges with a fine tip felt pen.
 

 
You can view these cards and others I created using the Wrapped In Joy Collection on the Couture Creations Website.
 
Keep on Creating.
