Any ideas on how to use black glossy for creating cards?

Use a white pigment pad and emboss it.

You can also use silver or gold pens on the black...

I really like black!! And using black glossy card is especially dramatic, even if it's quite the challenge. It's hard to know what inks will work well.

I have a card in the OnyxXpressions VIP Gallery that uses black glossy with Brilliance inks. (Until very recently, I didn't have a white ink pad to use, as Stampo has suggested).

Anyway... here it is: OnyxXpressions Stamps on Black Glossy

Thanks. The pens are a great idea and I loved the Brilliance on the black glossy.

Here is a link to one where I used and embossing folder in my Big Shot and then sanded to bring out the white script:

Here is another where I simply used an oval cut of it as a background/mat for flowers, etc that I had cut out in bright colors.

There are more examples in my gallery as well, including cards that have embossed white on black.

Oh almost forget, iridescent colors are great on black; H2O's, Radiant sprays, Pearl pigments, even some gel pen colors.
