This beautiful Penny Black stamp has been calling to me for awhile. I decided to use it and try a new technique and a tried and true technique. The gold card is made using the “black ice” technique involving mirror cardstock and clear embossing powder as well as stamping. It’s hard to get a good picture due to the shine, but its a very fun technique to try out. Just add a sentiment and a few die cuts and it’s very eye catching. The white card is tried and true water colour stamping. Simple and elegant using distress markers you can create such a striking card. If you need some inspiration for your Christmas cards you should find it with this class.
