1. Use chipboard Or blackboard if you have it and try these ideas http://cosmocricket.blogspot.com/2008/08/ten-blackboard-tips.html (http://cosmocricket.blogspot.com/2008/08/ten-blackboard-tips.html)

If you're like me you have a ton of chipboard! I gave a bunch away and I still have more! The above link had lots of cute ideas for the new blackboard. But you could use regular chipboard or even paint it black first ;)

All Righty! Got mine put together this evening and it and my card for the sketch challange are my favorites so far :D.

I started with plan chipboard letters (MM I think) and painted them black with MM acrylic paints and inked the sides black. then I mixed up some homemade glimmer mist with my emeral green perfect pearls and used a stencil on the letters and sprayed them. I think you can see the design but not the glimmer too well. I also sprayed the card and I won't do that again. Makes it curl up and you really can't tell. well, the black paint kept smuging the card even though it was dry so when I was looking for some ribbon to tie around the Y saw the wide green ribbon and decided to add it :). Stick and hang holly charms from ACP (http://www.startascrapbook.com/community/www.acharmingplace.com)and wa la - JOY Card. This was a lot of fun to make once I got the letters ready.

I have a friend on ACP whose name is Joy so this will mostly be her Christmas card :).
