Letterpress | Card: LOVE

At my stamp camp class earlier this month, I made this card while I was demonstrating the Big Shot Letterpress plates.  So much fun!! I'm totally addicted and want to make more now.  Through trail and error, I found that you get the best impression on the Watercolor Paper.  Funny.  Isn't that what the instructions say?!

LOVE

I also love the glimmer paper -- it doesn't flake glitter everywhere!!  I hope they carry it in a rainbow of colors next catalog!!  It's perfect for punching hearts out of and using on a scrapbook layout.  Soon, I'll be showing you a 12x12" layout I made using it.  So fabulous!! :)

Supplies for this project:
Cardstock:  Whisper White (#100730); Early Espresso (#119686); Real Red (#182402) 
Specialty Paper:  Watercolor Paper (#105019); Red Glimmer Paper (#121790)
Ink:  Real Red Craft Stampin' Spot (#119718)
Other:   Lots of Love Letterpress Plate (#120983); Big Shot Die-Cut Machine (#113439)
Punches:  Heart Extra-Large (#119883)
Ribbon:  Real Red 5/8" Satin Ribbon (#117286)
