A Chalkboard Pocket Calendar

pocket calendar-001

Every couple of years at my Stamping Clubs, we make a cute cover for a 2 year pocket calendar.  It was time for a new one this year, so here is the one we made.  (please excuse the bright spot on the pic from the flash – it reflected off the plastic).

I wanted the focal piece to look like a chalkboard, since it seems to be so trendy right now.  To make your black card stock look like a chalkboard, you simply tap your Embossing Buddy (#103083) on your card stock and then smear the powder around with your fingers.   Then, stamp your image in white ink.
