Stamp: Snow Swirled
Cardstock: Whisper White, Gold Metallic, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black, Versamark
Basic Black Grosgrain ribbon
1 1/4 inch round punch

I didn't have black embossing powder
and I also dislike how it goes all over
the cardstock especially white,
so this is what I do to keep my cardstock clean.

Ink up on versamark and then basic black
this makes your dye ink a temporary
pigment ink image.
If you are doing multiple images you will have
to clean your stamp each time.
I use a dedicated versamark pad for this so
of course it isn't clean after that treatment

I had to try gold embossing and black

Testing to see what works
gold embossed disc

Testing black embossed disc

When I attach ribbons to my card I normally
put the double sided tape on the cardstock.
I always line it up using my craft mat,
more often if I dont line it up it's always
crooked, then its hard to remove the ds tape

As a rule I also adhere the ribbon to
the card if it isn't on top of a layer
then I cut it, I have cut it prior and
it has been short after I tape it down.
Not nice and too hard to fix

What a mess!!
Uh Oh I didnt even take a photo of the finished card
ok it's going to appear first in the post
blogspot is weird like that
