Some bad news, you can’t print on black paper.  You need a special printer to print on black paper (i.e. a professional printer).  If you had white card stock, in your design program you could make the background black with a black box and the text blue, then print the whole thing and then you would see it.

Gocoos and Yudus will also be able to accomplish this if your willing to go for that.

You can also stap or stencil, but you do need to make a trial with the paint first just to make sure you can read it 😉

Could you print it on light-colored paper and then affix that to the darker cardstock?

@tams  Hi wedding date twin!  Since light ink on dark paper is a no go for you and looks like you are tight on time 😉 I’d say use the black cardstock as a backer and print black ink on a light blue cardstock… paste them onto the black cardstock to tie it all together (and not let the black paper go to waste!).

What about embossing? If you could somehow make a stamp (maybe break the text up into pieces) and use opaque ink and embossing powder, it could be done with less effort than with a gocco!
