Say it with a Chalkboard Valentine!

THIS WEEK ON IronCraft: Challenge #5 "Be Mine"— The challenge was to make a Valentine's Card. There are some really cute cards posted by my IronCraft friends like Jeromina's Valentine Tic Tac Toe card (she always blows me a way with her cool ideas),  and this adorable Heart Tree Embroidery Pattern from The Modern Lady (see her tutorial— you can do it too!).





I chose to go with a chalkboard theme, so I made these chalkboard speech bubbles. They were very easy to make. I just drew the bubble on the foam board, adhered chalkboard contact paper (you can find it here) and then trimmed it out with an exacto knife. Done! 





The Valentine's card was easy too. I  just mounted the photo to card stock to make it more firm and then adhered chalkboard contact paper to the back. The kids will have fun writing, erasing and re-writing their messages. 



   I wrote the message for Jackson, but that goofy smile is all his!
