Joyful Season Letterpress Plate

We made this card at our last Sparkler Downline meeting. Using the Letterpress takes a little getting used to but I really like the clean lines and the de-bossed look of this card.



Supplies: Cherry Cobbler, Naturals Ivory card stock; Cherry Cobbler & Garden Green craft ink (I used Stampin' Spots); Regals Patterns DSP Pack (Garden Green); Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon; Joyful Season Letterpress Plate, Dotto temporary adhesive & the Sizzix Big Shot.

It is recommended that you use a temporary adhesive and adhere the card stock to the cutting plate to keep it from sliding when going through the Big Shot.

Tunnel Card

I saw a sample of this card on my daughter's blog. She found it on someone's blog but the originator of this design is unknown. It's much easier than it looks!

Supplies: Very Vanilla, Pear Pizazz and Peach Parfait card stock; Pear Pizazz and Peach Parfait Classic Ink; 1 3/4" Circle, Modern Label and Word Window punches; Just Believe stamp set

1. Fold Very Vanilla in half.
2. Fold Pear Pizazz in half and then fold each side back to form a "W".
3. Punch Circle in the Pear Pizazz piece and stamp greeting onto the white, through the "hole".
4. Adhere both sides of the Pear Pizazz to the Very Vanilla card stock.
5. Stamp front of card and embellish as desired.

The folded card will be somewhat bulky so it's best to put your design element on the front of the card on the left side.
