Sizzix Ink It plate demo card 1
For those that don't know letter pressing is used in the professional printing world it involves "debossing" making an indent in the paper then appling ink to the debossed areas. It is different from embossing which raises the paper up and is more extreme. I should have taken some closer pictures of this sample so you could see what I mean. Here is a company that does letter press professionally and they have a good picture in their logo.
The above card is one of the first samples I made when I was playing with the new plates. I love how it turned out and I think this design might become my official Christmas card this year or at least until I get bored of the design and find a new one! :) The bottom part of the card is done with the Sizzix Rustic Trellis Ink It plate and Brillance Rocket Red pigment ink. The deer and sentiment are by A Muse stamped with the same Brillance ink. The store does still have both stamps in stock but they have been discontinued so if you need them hurry in. We still have quite a few of the Rustic Trellis plates still in stock. This card is a single layer card and to prevent the cardstock warping I used a 100lb cardstock also available at the store.
Thanks for stopping by!
