This card was created using a stamp from Stampsmith. They have some wonderful stamps -- the images look like vintage photos. I stamped on glossy cardstock with brown StazOn. This was really the best combination. I tried just about every other paper/ink combination I could think of. I also found it produced a clearer image when I stamped on a padded background (mousepad).
I used some of the Once Upon a Time paper from Die Cuts with a View as a background. I wanted the embossed corners on the top and bottom to be evenly spaced, so I had to cut the paper and then add a green distressed strip across the middle to hide where I cut it. I cut the ribbon slide from the Cuttlebug set on heavy cardboard and then inked it up with green pigment ink, heat set to dry. Then I stamped "Magical" and embossed that.
