World Card Making Day 2014 – Lovely Letterpress

Stampin' Up! UK Letterpress Lovely Lace

This card was such a mess to make! LetterPress is one of the ‘hot topics’ in the crafty world at the moment! I had to have a go!

I grabbed my Lovely Lace embossing folder, and Melon Mambo ink. To get this look, where the ink is on the ‘flat’ part of the design, with the white embossing sticking up through it, you need to add ink directly to the embossing folder. I add my ink to the side with the Sizzix / Stampin’ Up! logos on. Be carefully not to get ink down into the design of the folder, or you will end up with ink on the embossed elements – which we want to stay white. Then, lay the cardstock in the embossing folder, closing the folder carefully so not to move the card and smudge the ink. The run this embossing folder / ink / cardstock sandwich through your Big Shot.

The next trick is to remove the cardstock from the folder without smudging the ink! I would suggest that you leave this to dry for a little while, the card will be very wet! and clean the embossing folder quickly – I made this card a couple of days ago (yes, I’m naughty, this is the power of the blog – I’m actually at work right now!), and I still have bright pink inky fingers!

But the result is so pretty!

I finished this card with a simple sentiment from I Like You!
