This project teaches you how to do heat embossing, and how to use chalk to create a nice focal point for a card.

Step 1: Gather Supplies

Words of Encouragement from Inkadinkado
I used a light green 3 1/4" x 5 1/4" folded card made of cotton paper from Woodson Creative for the card base, but you don't have to use anything fancy
White cardstock at least 3 1/4" square
Paper to mat the stamped image cut to 3" square. I used a shimmery silver piece of scrap paper (not pictured)
VersaMark watermark pad by Tsukineko (not pictured)
Heat gun
Craft knife
Pencil and eraser
Metal edged ruler
Matte clear finish spray by Krylon
Zots glue dots by Therm O Web (not pictured)
Other paper adhesive, like mounting squares or double stick tape (not pictured)
Black detail embossing powder by Stampin' Up!
White embroidery floss
Chalk and applicators by EK Success
Heart charm
this is such a great idea, I have all of that stuff but you really helped.
You can use a hair dryer if you direct it on the back of the card instead of the front.
Thank you! Thank you! I never knew what to do to keep my chalked pieces from smearing. Your the best!

That's great! All of the techniques I use for my cards can very easily be used for scrapbooking, and the supplies I use can be purchased at scrapbooking supply stores as well. Check out my blog! <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.paperwoods.com">Paper Woods</a><br/><br/>Happy crafting!<br/>

That's not something I'm every likely to have to do, but now I could if I had too. Very well done.
