Chalkboard Back to School shaped card

The kids went back to school this week so I had to get them all a special card made. This one is for my Grand daughter going into the 6th grade starting middle school this year.
This is another cute file from
I used my Cricut Explore not only to cut everything for this card but also for the writing.
I cut the cute shaped card base from Kraft cardstock.  I just used plain black cardstock for the chalkboard.  I used a Recollection's metallic silver pen for the top letters and one of my new Promarx liquid chalk markers for the pink lettering.
I found a cheap way to use other markers in my Cricut Explore by removing my pen holder and buying some cheap dollar store foam pen grips and cutting them to fit around .... I will post photos below.

I used a Cricut fine tip pen for the math and science books and stamped the face on the apple with Peachy Keen Basic Paper Doll Faces stamp set using Memento Tuxedo black ink. I drew some black marks on the ruler by hand.  I used foam tape to pop up the chalk holder ledge.
For the inside I again used my Cricut Explore to write, this time in a Cricut fine tip blue pen.
I stamped the heart apple with a dollar store stamp from my stash.  I used spectrum Noir markers to color it in.
I hope that helps anyone.
