I cased this one off of Pinterest and then made it my own. I had been wanting the Expressions thinlits for a while when I happened to see them on sale! Hurray! This is the first card I made with these thinlits and I definitely recommend using a layer of wax paper between the Thinlit and your paper for easier release of the paper. This card was simple and fun and I like the "chalkboard" look of it. I have to tell you a little secret.... I'm a paper hoarder.... I cut the real red background to fit the black front, then, I cut a huge rectangle out of the red piece! I ended up with a pretty nice sized piece to save. Anything to save a piece of paper, why not?!


  1. Love this card! Did you get your Thinlits thru stampin up?

    1. Hi! Yes, I used the Expressions Thinlits from Stampin' Up! They are in the clearance rack right now for $14.99. The item number is 132171 just in case you need it. Thanks for checking out my blog!
