Chalkboard Valentines Day Card..

I decided to create a unique Valentine's Day card using a mini chalkboard on the front.

(This would also be adorable as a name card at each place setting on your table..)

I took a small wooden heart that I purchased at a craft store,
and I painted it with chalkboard paint.. then I let it dry.

I picked out some heavyweight paper for the card itself, and a coordinating piece of scrapbooking paper that I liked.
I folded the heavier paper in half, and then cut it down to the size I wanted for my card.
Then I cut the accent paper to fit in the center of the front of the card, and I glued it on. 
Next up, I glued on the miniature chalkboard as well as a little bow that I made out of some ribbon that I had.. and then just waited until the glue was set/dry.

You can certainly go all out decorating one of these..
you could add glitter, a ribbon to hold the chalk on the card, rubber stamps, lace, and so on.

However, it is a busy week here and I was going for a quick project this time around. :0)
