Easy Chalk Art Print and Cut

Who doesn’t love chalk art?  If you haven’t been living under a rock (wink* wink*), I’m sure you’ve noticed that chalkboards are trending BIG time in everything from home decor and parties, to scrapbooking and cardmaking.  Add in the cute floral and wreath trend and you’ve got yourself a pretty awesome card, I think!

I used a cute phrase that has that great “chalk art” look, and paired with bright papers, the chalkboard really pops!

I have a few tips and tricks to share with you on how easy it was to create this Print & Cut chalk art, so I made a video!

  1. I like this idea! Thanks for sharing it! I think this weekend when I can get into my craft room I’m gonna try this technique! THANKS!:o)


  2. Thanks for sharing this. I love the chalkboard look, but don’t have any chalkboard paper. I’m glad to see that I can still do it! I think I’m going to go make a card *right now* 🙂

  3. Thanks for the tutorial on this very cute card. I hadn’t thought of doing something like this, but it’s a neat idea.

  4. Great tutorial and card. Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Great idea! Love it! Thanks Jen!

    BTW I used to have major issues do P&C because it would make these weird lighter rectangles on my images (especially larger things) BUT that ONLY happened when I printed from the Studio. I started clicking Print, then the little PDF option would be on the window (I use a Mac so not sure about a PC). I started using the “Open as a PDF” or “Save as a PDF” options and printed from Preview (my PDF reader of choice) and it prints like a dream. Just a suggestion to try for those that struggle with that feature.

  6. love this, what is the label shape you used in the video?

  7. not getting the offset of the transparency layer. how do you move it so close?

    1. I find it helpful to use the arrow keys on my keyboard when I want more precise placement. Hope that helps!

  8. Love how you got the chalkboard look – thanks for the tutorial!

    1. Looks great! I love it!

  9. Fabulous, love the mix of pretty florals with the soft stripes and chalkboard label 🙂

  10. OH fun! I love how you used the actual chalk stick on the paper!! Thanks for the tips!

  11. Really great. Learned a lot today and I like your card. Thanks!

  12. Great card! I never knew you could move the bounding box for print and cuts, now I can save more paper. I am definitely going to CASE this card.

  13. Thanks for the video. It is really helpful.

  14. Great card!! I love it! I’m new to the Silhouette so I need all the tutorials I can get. Thanks so much!!

  15. The chalkboard look is great, but has the tutorial been moved? I can’t find it.
