Poinsettia Corner BetterPress Christmas Card

Hello!  I'm back today to share this card featuring a new BetterPress Letterpress plate by Spellbinders called Poinsettia Corner Press Plate & Die Set.  I love how this turned out, and it was so easy that this might be the card design I mass produce for Christmas cards to send to family and close friends!

Following the directions for the BetterPress Letterpress System, I inked the Poinsettia Corner Press Plate with Hydrangea BetterPress ink.  I pressed the image onto a piece of Porcelain cotton card.  I inked the press plate again, but this time rotated the Platen before I ran it through my Platinum die cutting machine.

I trimmed the image to 3-¾" x 5" and adhered it to an A2 piece of brushed silver cardstock.

Next I inked up the sentiment included in the Poinsettia Corner set with black BetterPress ink and pressed it onto a scrap piece of Porcelain cotton card.  I cut it out with the included coordinating die.

I die cut an oval from more brushed silver cardstock and added foam tape to the back to adhere it.  Then I added some thin foam tape to the back of the sentiment for just a bit more dimension.

A few silver metallic pearls adds just a bit more shine to my card.

And that's it!  For such minimal effort, I really feel this is a gorgeous card!  Thank you so very much for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!
