My second card is stamping on dark cardstock and embossing with a die. I love this look and embossing without cutting is a technique I really like and don't use enough. After I embossed the sentiment box onto my card, I stamped all around in an ink color a little darker than the cardstock. I then went back and added just a few shadows using the same color in a different shade.
My sentiment and double hearts are by Verve Stamps; the foliage is by WPlus9.
