Pink Letterpress Card

Hi Everybody,

No post yesterday as we spent the whole day getting my daughters old house ready for the new people.  The whole place shines and smells gorgeous.

We steamed and shampooed everything ... we even vacuumed the Venetian blinds and steam cleaned the wallpaper.  So now the new people can move in and have nothing to do as everything is ready for them.

Here is another of the Letterpress cards and this one is crated with Victorian Velvet and the Framed Labels 18 3D M-Bossabiliteis folder

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and they are a mixture of Roses, Carnations, Cherry Blossoms, Tulips and buds.

The Diamante "Bling" is from Want2Scrap  and makes this card look really special.

The white Organza ribbon is from my "Stash" and the centre has the addition of a Dazzler.

This is using the same folder and colour scheme but with the other side of the folder inked up.

This gives a different look to where the colour is added.... but is just as pretty.

The video  Letterpress Technique  has now been added to the website and I hope you will find it useful.

Hugs xx

  13. Both cards are stunning Christina, I love the organaza ribbon on the first card and the pink rose lace on the second, so beautiful.. I need a brayer to achieve this effect for mine does come out uneven and even though you cleverly showed us how to cover up the mistakes in the video I just had too many. Hugs

  14. Both cards are gorgeous - couldn't possibly choose between them if I had to!
