Hi friends! Today I am on the Foiled Fox Blog sharing a few cards that use the new BetterPress Letterpress System from Spellbinders. You can find all of the details about this fun new Letterpress in this video here: Spellbinders BetterPress Unboxing and Release at The Foiled Fox. The video gives all the details and information you need to use the letterpress and get the best results. I am not one to use a lot of "tools" but I can't believe how easy the letterpress is to use and the results are amazing.
For my first card I started by using the Spellbinders BetterPress Letterpress System to make my card panel. I followed the directions on the video and used the Floral View Plate and Die to make my panel. I then used the sentiment and die included in the Floral View set to make my sentiment.
Next, I did some quick watercoloring with Distress Ink in Mowed Lawn, Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed on the flowers and leaves. I then trimmed the panel down and attached my sentiment with foam adhesive.
Lastly, I used the Spring Foliage dies from Pretty Pink Posh to die cut a few florals and leaves to use as accents around my sentiment. I die cut the flowers from Hibiscus Burst, Summer Sunrise and Bright Buttercup cardstcok and the leaves from New Leaf cardstock.
Next, I made three cards that use the Big Thanks Letterpress Plate. I love the size and font of this sentiment! I decided to use the Letterpress on "regular" cardstock for these cards. I used Concord & 9th cardstock in Sprout, Sea Glass and Nectar.
Once my panels were finished I used the Spring Foliage dies again to add a few floral accents to my cards.
