BSS MONDAY IDEA - White Embossing on Dark Paper

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
This week's card features embossing in white on dark
colored paper.

Flowers, patterns and textures work best.
The Stamp I used is by Penny Black, Floral Thread (40-135)
Sentiment stamps are both Just Rite Stamps, Large Fancy Sentiments(CR-03815)
Hearts were punched from Marvey Heart punches
Cuttlebug heart embossing folder.
white embossing powder
red embossing powder
Versafine clear ink pad
Dotted red ribbon bow
Spellbinders die, Grand Large Labels (LF-168)
Black and White and Red  Card Stock
Card is a 5.7 inch white card stock base.
Stamped the Penny Black Floral Thread cling stamp on black
card stock with clear embossing ink and embossed with white powder.
Cut the white mat out of white card and embossed.
Using the same size die, I cut a piece of the stamped image
about 21/2-3 inches
Since it had a beautiful unfinished edge on the stamped image, I cut along
the edge for extra eye appeal.
Attached this piece to the bottom of the white die cut.
Ran the ribbon around this piece before adhering it to the black
and tied a simple knot.
The white on any dark paper looks fabulous.
Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week.  Until later........
