Come To Bethlehem

For those of you that own a Big Shot, Stampin' Up! now carries a new product to use with your machines called "Letterpress Plates". You use them the same way you would any of your dies. The only exception is that you can use them alone to create embossing or you can add ink first to your plates, then emboss. The card below depicts using ink on the plates:

The stamp set used in this card is "Come to Bethleham". "Basic Gray" is a cardstock color I hardly ever remember to use. I thought I would use it as the main background color for this card and I also used "Basic Gray ink" for my stamped image.

Notice the embossing? I used "Baja Breeze" ink on my letterpress plates and then layered my "Very Vanilla cardstock" over the plates, ran them through my "Big Shot" and look how stunning the results are. I added "Pearl Jewels" for the flower centers and one on the star.

  • Stamp Sets: Come to Bethleham
  • Tools: Big Shot, Northern Trim Letterpress Plates, Corner Rounder Punch
  • Accessories: Pearl Jewels
