Teacher's Chalkboard Thank You

It's a perfect time for the Chalkboard technique challenge on the DRS Designs Blog this week. I attend a "Mommy and Me" class once a week with my 2 year old son. Now when school ends in 3 weeks, I already have my Thank You card ready to go. Anyone who can teach 5 classes of 2 year old's all year long deserves a big Thank you in my book. I can hardly handle the one I've got and she sees 60 of them every week! I plan on papercrafting a gift to go with this card, but I'll have to show that off at a later date.

Both the Teacher Touch A Heart Greeting (475G) and the Teacher Tools image (792G) are by DRS Designs. They were heat embossed with white embossing powder on black cardstock. Then, white ink was sponged around the embossed areas to make it resemble a chalkboard. It's such an easy technique with cool results! The white layer here was embossed with a small hearts embossing folder, but it's difficult to see. The finished card size is 4.25" x 5.5".

Won't you join us in this challenge? Give it a try and link your card HERE for a chance to win a prize from DRS Designs.

Good Luck and thanks for stopping by!
