Joyful Season Letterpress Card

So today I am going to be showing you a card that I made with a letterpress die from Stampin' Up called Joyful Season:

So, I used the above letterpress plate to create this:

This card was SO simple to make! Here is the card recipe:

-1 piece of white card stock, cut at 4 1/4 by 11 and scored at 5 1/2
-1 piece of red card stock cut at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
-1 piece of coordinating patterned card stock cut at 4 x 5 1/4
-1 piece of coordinating patterned card stock cut at 1 1/2 x 2 1/2
-Joyful Season Letterpress Plate
-Versamark Ink Pad
-Big Shot or other die cutting machine
-3 Stampin Up Glimmer Brads (brights)
-Crop O Dial
-Baby wipe

Take your versamark ink pad and ink up your letterpress plate. Run your piece of red card stock through your die cutting machine (with the Big Shot, have the platform on Tab 1, letterpress plate, red piece of card stock, acrylic pad, and a piece of paper to act as a shim) to create your die cut. Use your baby wipe to clean off the letterpress plate. After you create it, you will trim it so it becomes 3 X 5 1/4. You will take the larger piece of patterned paper and adhere it to the white card stock.  Next, take your small piece of patterned paper and punch out 3 holes that are 3/16 inches apart from each other. Adhere that piece to your red die cut piece and punch out 3 more holes that are lined up with the piece on top. After that,  pick out 2 red brads and 1 green brad from Stampin Up Brights Glimmer Brads and push them through both pieces of card stock. to finish the card, adhere that large piece on top of your patterned paper that you already adhered to your card base.

You now have another card in your samples to create for your Christmas cards!

Thanks for sticking with me!!! I'll be back tomorrow with anther holiday project!
