Chalkboard Pullout Card

Today I thought I'd share with you one of our Diva cards.  This uses the chalkboard technique (see prior blog for instructions). 

I started by cutting a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of black card stock and scored at 2" and 6" horizontally.  Fold and tape shut.  This taped side will be your front.  Attach a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of pool party card stock (cut two, you will need another piece later) on the front.  Attach your chalkboard piece on top (cut 4 1/2 x 3 and use scallop border punch at bottom).  Using the 1 1/4" circle punch, punch a half circle on the top and punch a 1/16" hole just under this, going through both front and back pieces. 

Attach a white piece of card stock (3 3/4 x 5") on top of the other piece of pool party card stock.  Here's the magic...run a 30" piece of thin ribbon from front to back of the main card through the small holes.  Push the insert down until it's hidden the card.  Tie a bow.  Now pull up on the tied bow and the insert will come out.  Push down on the bow and the insert goes back down.  Magic!  Don't ask me how it works, but it does!

Enjoy your sneak peak from the new catalog .. Sketched Birthday stamp set.  You can order this and a ton of new products starting May 31st!
