Stampin’ Up Amazing Silhouettes Birthday

Hello Everyone – are you ready for an idea for stamping on dark cardstock with my Stampin’ Up Amazing Silhouettes Birthday creation?

Another technique for using dark cardstock is to stamp it and emboss with white. I used that idea for today’s card.

How easy can this get?  Embossed dark cardstock and a panel with a white embossed image.  Get all the details for this masculine card idea.

This is a great technique to use with this stamp set as the

Amazing Silhouettes bundle – save 10% when you purchase the bundle on January 4th.

I paired the stamp set with the Greenery embossing folder. The one with the leaf sprays is perfect for this image. I also used some Evening Evergreen ink and swiped the pad across the embossing to highlight the embossing.

I used the same image and some Evening Evergreen ink to decorate the inside of the card and envelope.

This image is perfect for  embossing on dark cardstock.  See all the details for this masculine card idea and get the supplies so you can make your version.

This is my first time playing with this image in the set. I did use one of the other images for this card. I have some other ideas I want to try so will be seeing what else I can do with it.
