Sweet and Simple Christmas Card


This was such a fun card to make.  I had some bits and pieces on my desk already from playing with the new Letterpress Plates and I decided to use up all the leftovers:)  Believe me, this just as satisfying as using up all the leftovers in the fridge... maybe even better!

I was playing with the Letterpress plates today to see how to get the clearest image.  Textured Cardstock and Watercolor Paper definitely work best as they are porous and the paper seems to end up with a much deeper indentation.  I've played with both the Craft and the Classic ink too now and I must say that I was impressed with both.  I'm more partial to Classic as I make less of a mess with it, but for something like Black or White, I would definitely use my Craft ink.
