letterpress

I picked up some letterpress plates on sale over the weekend and thought I would try them out today!   I’m using the plates without ink for more of a debossed look and paired it with a pretty sentiment from Mark’s Finest Papers.  MFP is having a stamp giveaway with their Friends of Speedy TV challenge each week – check out Speedy TV HERE.

 

The card is for this weeks Clean And Simple challenge at SCS – calling for blue and white.   I used a letterpress plate in the left corner (up close photo down below) along with a sentiment from the Love Remains set from MFP.

The pretty blue cardstock is from MFP as is the white base card.  The main panel uses Cranes Lettra letterpress paper – it works wonderful for letterpressing and dry embossing.  Here is a close up look at the letterpressing:

 

Later on this week we’ll be sharing some sneak peeks from the March release from Mark’s Finest Papers.   I hope you will stop by!!
