The pièce de résistance on this Mother's Day card is the Silver Foil panel, finished with the Black Ice Technique.  I love this look; it reminds me of viewing the world through icy or condensation-streaked windows.  Here's how this was created:

  1. Cut Silver Foil Sheet at 8 cm x 8 cm (3" x 3") and temporarily adhere to a piece of Grid Paper or scrap paper.
  2. Drag the flat edge of the Basic Black Archival Stampin' Pad, leaving a streak of ink like wood-grain, down the Silver Foil.  Rotate and drag from the opposite edge too.
  3. Stamp the gorgeous bunch of flowers in the top right and words across the bottom of the Silver Foil in Basic Black Archival ink.
  4. Dry the ink using a Heat Tool.
  5. Lightly drag the flat edge of the VersaMark Ink Pad down the Silver Foil.  Remove Silver Foil from Grid Paper, add Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set.
  6. Adhere Silver Foil to Basic Black card stock cut at 8 cm x 8 cm (3-3/8" x 3-3/8").
