Merry Christmas Chalkboard

I love the technique to make black paper into a chalkboard.  I also love the colors of Black, Red and Green together.
I used a piece of Kiwi Slice Cardstock for the base of the card.  I cut a piece of Black Licorice Cardstock slightly smaller for the chalkboard.  Using Whip Cream Ink and a dry baby wipe, I wrapped my index finger with the baby wipe and dipped it in the ink.  I then applied the ink in a circular motion on the edges of the paper.  You can apply as little or as much as you want.  I then stamped the "Merry Christmas" from the Cheerful Trees set in the same ink.
I stamped the Mistletoe Kiss ATS in Black Licorice on Kiwi Slice Cardstock and fussy cut it out.
I then wrapped Candy Apple Satin Ribbon and Tinsel Trim around the top of the Black Licorice Cardstock. 
I popped the Mistletoe leaves up with foam squares and then added some sparkly pom poms.  To finish the card I added some Journey Sequins- Holiday Elements to the bottom area using Journey Glaze.  Enjoy!
