Set of Three Easy-to-make Autumn Cards featuring the BetterPress Letterpress System

Hello, friends!  Today I'm sharing three cards I made with a couple of products in Spellbinders BetterPress Fall/Halloween Collection. These easy cards feature the gorgeous Autumn Floral Corner press plate and the Notched Corner Frames dies.

I created all three cards using Spellbinders' BetterPress Letterpress System.  I used three of the inks in the Desert Sunset BetterPress mini ink pad set and the Autumn Floral Corner press plate.  I followed the directions for the BetterPress and pressed the image onto Bisque A2 cotton card panels.  This first card is pressed with Tuscan ink.

The sentiment from this card is included with the Autumn Floral Corner set and pressed with black ink from the Regal Tones mini ink pad set.

Next I trimmed each panel to 4" x 5-¼".  Then I used the fourth largest Notched Corner Frames die and die cut the center of each panel.  Before I glued on the outer portion of the panel, I inked up the front edges of an A2 card base with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink, which matches perfectly!

I tied a piece of gingham ribbon around the center panel and added foam tape to the back to pop it up.

The next two cards are created in the same way as the first, just different ink colors.

This time I pressed the Autumn Floral Corner with Clay ink.  I found another very good coordinating ink-Rusty Hinge Distress ink-for the card base.  This sentiment is from the A Little Message Sentiments press plates and dies set.

Last but not least, is the final card pressed with Coastal Ink.  I searched through my entire stash of ink pads to find a coordinating ink for the card base and this is the closest I could come!

Even though the Peacock ink is a bit bright, I do think that Concord & 9th's Peacock ink coordinates very nicely!  Again, the sentiment is from the A Little Message Sentiments set.

I hope you've been inspired by these easy and beautiful cards today!  I truly do love the BetterPress system and the crisp images it creates!  Thanks so very much for stopping by!

  1. So fun! Love the variety of colors you used -- the fall corner is definitely pretty

  2. These are so amazing! Love all your colors and the addition of the gingham bows, perfect. I am not familiar with the letter press from Spellbinders, but it sure looks amazing. TFS
