Beautiful Black Ice

April 10, 2018

I wanted to make a card using the Black Ice technique but I didn’t want the whole card to feel dark and heavy.  I stamped the  the greeting from the Beautiful You stamp set lower right hand corner of Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I embossed the stamped card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Peekaboo Peach card.  I punched two strips of Peekaboo Peach card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and attached them to each side of a piece of Painted Autumn Designer Series paper (retired).  The panel is attached to the left hand side of the embossed card.  I attached each piece of punched card with a different edge showing and now that I look at the photo, I think I should have had the decorative edge showing on the left hand side.  I cut a piece of Silver Foil card and following the technique instructions, dragged the Basic Black Archival Ink over the card.  I stamped the image from Beautiful You using the same ink and used the Heat tool to set the ink.  I ran the Versamark ink down the card and sprinkled with Clear Embossing Powder before heat setting.  The image panel is attached to Basic Black card and then the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I punched a strip of Peekaboo Peach card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch.  The punched strip is attached behind one long edge of the same Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper before being attached to the bottom of Whisper White card.

I love how this image looks with the Peekaboo Peach and Whisper White card don’t you.

Bye for now,
