TLC 160: Where oh where did my stamps go?

I'm in shock... I didn't use a single stamp while making this card! That wasn't my intention when I started this card but you know how projects can take on a life of their own. :) Especially when you sit down and the only criteria that you have is that the card use the latest technique challenge posted to Split Coast Stampers: Cuttlebug - The Negative Effect . Which ended up being very easy and fun. Not sure how easy it would have been if I didn't have a Cuttlebug though! ;)

Other notes: the letters are Vinyl Thickers by American Crafts (love 'em) and the sentiment is a rub-on from the A Perfect Day set available in the new Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini catalog. For the Cuttlebug technique I used Sage Shadow cardstock, Wild Wasabi Classic ink and the Traffic Jam embossing folder. About 3/4" of the bottom front of the card was cut off so that the back of the card peeks through and a scalloped edge was added with the small corner rounder.

Here's another angle of the card to show more of the embossing and the texture of the thickers.
