Card of the Week - Elegance in Black & Gold

This weeks project is an elegant card featuring an ornate stamp of a solid bird framed in a scrollwork square.  The stamp is from Inkadinkadoo and is an excellent choice for masculine cards as well.  Below are the supplies we used for the project.

The stamp is stamped 3 times, twice using Memories Black Dye Ink and a third time using Versamark for embossing.  Memories Black Dye ink gives  wonderful overall coverage for a perfect, clear and distinct image time after time.  The versamarked image is covered in gold embossing powder and then heated up to create the raised, shiny and 3D look.

The other 2 black stamped images are cut out eliminating certain parts of the image.  After cutting out all 3 pieces, you should have 3 images as shown below.

And this is the final card -- just add a little black cardstock, some gold ribbon and some gold brads and you have a very elegant card!
