Chalks, a glue pen & the Chomas Creations adjustable holders

So I had this idea to try out something new today.  I just love when I get a little bit of creative time!  So I got out the chalks (oooh you know if you have been crafting long that you still have them!) and the Sakura Quickie Glue glue pen to see what I could do.
I added the glue pen to the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder in the Cameo.  The key with the glue pen is to go sloooooow...  So I turned the speed all the way down to 1, and the thickness down to 1 as well as the glue pen is a very wet pen.  Notice how I am keeping the design to the left of the main rollers in my machine *2 (you will see the rollers when you click on send to Silhouette *1).  You may also need to move over the rubber rollers on the bar in the Cameo as they can smear wet pens like the glue pen.

The glue comes out a light blue shade when it is wet, and turns clear when dry.  Make sure it is dry when you chalk it up!  I made mine into a card.  The flower design was a studio download.  The title I used a thin font from Lettering Delights called LDT sparkle.  I didn't get the best picture as this is a light green chalk, but it looks really pretty in real life! 
Want to know how I got the card to fold like that?  Simple!  Cut 2 of the shape you are going to use.  On 1 of the shapes add a straight line like shown in the picture below.  Make sure to turn on and off your cut settings when you do this.  I added a stylus to the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder to score the solid line.  I did copy and paste in place the line 3 times, so it was scored 4 times with a thickness of 33 and a speed of 3.
Now you fold along your score line, use a bone folder to smooth the crease and a double sided sticky tape to glue the small part onto the back of your card!
