Needed some thank you cards to send out for the gifts I received for my birthday. I made these using the Letterpress machine from Lifestyle Crafts. I’ve been wanting this machine for quite a while but never bought it. Found a great deal on HSN, hinted to my honey and he got it for me for our anniversary last month! (click image to enlarge)
The letterpress plates I used came with the kit I got. But I have found out that you can have plates made and will be doing that soon, once I can get some ideas together. The paper is 140lb watercolor paper. The kit came with paper samples, but I wanted to find something that was readily available to me and didn’t require me ordering it. I tried out some watercolor paper I had on hand, 90lb, but the impression just wasn’t deep enough. I found this 140lb stock at my local craft store and it worked perfectly. I wish you could see and feel the deep impression I got.
So what do you think?
Thanks for stopping by!
