Earlier this week I shared how to create a glamorous focal point for a paper crafting project using the Black Ice Technique.  Here's two more ideas, this feminine one is stunning with Copper Foil, and stamped using the Perennial Birthday stamp set...

Perennial Birthday Card

I love how this birthday card turned out, especially the textural elements to compliment the texture in the Black Ice Technique: clear-embossed black background, wooden elements and Copper Trim.

Even though I've shown you the Black Ice Technique on a Mother's Day card and this floral birthday card, it definitely isn't limited to feminine projects.  Here's the same layout and technique on a masculine card using the Black Ice Technique and Colorful Seasons stamp set...

This card is gorgeous in Gold Foil with black and natural accents.  I especially love the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper background, and I am so pleased that this product is continuing into the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.  However, it's the only current Designer Series Paper that will be available after 31 May; all others are being retired.  Make sure you get your favourite while it's still available.
