One of my mother's dear friends is going to celebrate her 90th birthday in a few days so Mother asked me to make a special card for her.  One of my friends had forwarded a link to me showing me this new technique so I decided to try it.
My card stock is SU Pacific Point.  First of all I stamped the Serene Silhouettes design with SU Craft White ink.  Once the white ink is dry I stamped the design on top of the white but just a fraction of an inch off to the right to give a bit of a shadow affect.  (It is supposed to be a faux embossed look.)  I did the same thing with the little butterfly.
The "90" was cut out from SU Pacific Point dp using some Cuttlebug dies that I have had for a very long time but only used once or twice.   I tied a piece of white lace around the top layer before adding it to the white mat. 
Before attaching the top two layers to the card base, I embossed the base with the Swiss Dots folder.  Last of all I popped the little sentiment on with foam dots.
Thank you for stopping by today.............I'd love to hear what you think of this card.

I love this technique and have been thinking lately about doing it again. It is such a great effect and definitely looks embossed.
