3-D Stamping

This card was inspired by Beate Johns' card HERE (May 16 post) and is very easy to do: Simply stamp an image in white ink and then re-stamp over it in the darker ink, positioning it slightly off to create the shadow effect. While some like to use a stamp positioner (such as Stampamajig) I find it just as easy to eyeball it. Although not necessary, I also used some clear embossing powder to "pop" the image.

For this monochromatic card, I used Soft Suede for the base. The white cardstock was distressed on the edges with a distress tool, then inked on the edges with Versamark Sahara Sand. The top image was "framed" with a metallic brown paper then mounted on the angled white cardstock with dimensionals after adding the sheer ribbon.
