Today I thought I’d share with you one my first cards using the new Heart Pressed letterpress plate. Most of the other letterpress dies are big, bold patterns that often are the focal point, so it was fun to play with a more subtle pattern.
I used the Heart Pressed die as a textured patterned paper and wanted to let it provide a lot of the interest in the card. Then I added a few, to me, vintage-y accents for a little extra flair.
This is also another example of why the Filled With Love stamp set is such a great set. You look at the set and think Valentine’s Day, but I think this sentiment could really be used at any time. Heck, even a birthday card for a loved one! I really hope this set shows up in the next big catalog.
Hope you have a fabulous Monday!.
