Wrapped in Joy Week - Faux Chalkboard Effect with Tracey Cooley

Hi Creators! Tracey Cooley, Couture Creations Special Project Designer, here with another CHA card creation. Chalkboard is all the rage at the moment and the Couture Creations Wrapped In Joy 5x7 Christmas Carols Embossing Folder is perfect for the faux chalkboard effect.

This look is so simple to achieve! All you need is some black cardstock, the Christmas Carols Embossing 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 the Christmas Carols Embossing 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 and 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 colors. I stamped the embossed cardstock with a script stamp before removing my cardstock from the embossing folder. I then traced the edges with a fine tip felt pen.

Keep on Creating!
