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!
