Hello and thanks for stopping by my blog today! I have prepared a fun card for the Technique Zone Design Team, using the Chalkboard Technique. This is not a new technique by any means but it’s easy to get success for any skill level. That’s important to us all, as we often need to create a card quickly and are in need of a fresh idea.
My card fits with the TGIF Challenge this week. The theme is “Christmas Carols” and here are a few carols that contain “Joy” or “Oh Joy”…. Joy to the World, Jingle Bells, Oh Joy Which the Lord Grants, Oh Joy Beyond Expression and one of my favorites… Joy, sung by Whitney Houston (from the movie The Preacher’s Wife) Thanks so much, TGIF DT, for choosing my card as this week’s winner!
Chalkboard Technique for cardmaking

This card was easy to create! Here are the steps I followed to create the Chalkboard Technique:
