Before I get to my card, I want to give a shout out to sweet, sweet Laine from Hugs4theHeart Designs! I was lucky enough to win a giveaway on her blog and I want to show you how generous of a prize giver she is:
Can you believe it?! I got 4 different sets of stamps, a sampler of ribbon, mixed beads, and a super vintage and gorgeous thank you tag! I will be putting them all to good use in the near future! I would highly recommend that you visit her to see her versatile crafting--by versatile I mean that she makes everything from cards to beautifully altered boxes and creating different wall art. Who knows, you may get your next spark of creativity from her! Thank you, Laine, and you ROCK! :)))))
Here is my card--I bought the Lifestyles Letterpress Starter Kit a while back to use with my Cuttlebug. It took some adjusting, but came out pretty good in the end. It's hard to see the depth of the debossing in pictures, sorry!
It's a blue candle for a guy--4 rolled coils with glittered centers. Heavyweight card stock (140 lbs) sits on top of blue card stock (80 lbs). You really do need the super heavy and thick card stock when working with letterpress.
This was given to one of my housemates to give to his dad's birthday, so it was typed in Chinese and printed out--says, Wishing you a happy birthday, daddy! You read it from right to left, top to bottom.
