Hello everyone! I am a newbie to both this forum and card making. I had the bright idea of making my own Christmas cards this year and I'm regretting it.

The cardstock I am using is black. I am trying to stamp a big Season's Greetings on the inside using a clear stamp and Stampology clear stamp ink in silver, and it's not showing. Can anyone tell me what is the best ink/method I should use to get it to show up? TIA!!!

You could emboss with silver embossing powder and a heat gun.

I agree with Jessica, that's going to be your best bet IMO.

Jessica is always correct....emboss the inside, use a glue pad stamp image - put on embossing powder & heat it up....jsut becareful when heating to close to card will start to bend or discolor your card when you are done & join a few of the forums & everyone will be more than happy to help
