Faux dry embossing

I love using techniques, but forget about them from time to time. I know I've done this one before, and I really like the results.

It's really easy to achieve this look. First, stamp your image using white or vanilla craft ink - I used white. Wait for it to dry, or speed the process with your heat gun. Use a stamp a ma jig and offset your image just a little bit and stamp it onto your card with a dark color of ink. I used the same ink color as my card stock, which is ruby red. It really does have a 3D/embossed look to it. I stamped the sentiment with chocolate chip ink, distressed the edges, added some brads and ribbon, and there you have it. Hmm, I wonder who I will send this one to?
