Friends Black & Blue Embossed Card


This card turned out so pretty!!! Right after I figured out that I could emboss using any of my pigment inks I had to play around with my stamps again and making some background papers. I love this particular stamp sooooooo much and you probably notice I use it quite often. It looks FANTASTIC embossed. The black gets even deeper and of course it raises the entire design up but it also will never smear and that is wonderful. I wanted to keep this card very simple and elegant so the pretty embossed pattern could really be appreciated. I matted the sentiment several times to make it bigger and to make it really pop and I love that. The pearls along the side were just an added touch. This card is amazing...I wish I could keep it but I'm sure I'll be parting with it soon!

Ladies...thank you ALL so much! I wish I knew what the name of this stamp was but I am pretty sure it was by inkadinkadoo...and it came from Michael's. It is part of a 3 pack of stamps which are all meant to stamp patterns. I absolutely love this pattern and it embosses really nicely.

Maybe I will do a video of this sometime and show you all. :)
