My entry into Moxie Fab World's Card Creations Week Ombre Challenge turned into an anniversary card for cousins Sara and Jory (congrats on 15 years!). In the past week or so, I had the idea to use my new letterpress printing plate (by Lifestyle Crafts) to deboss a tree and then add butterfly punches. It's the first time using the letterpress plate with the Big Shot. I had to experiment with different layers to get the pressure right, then inked up the plastic plate and ran it through. The butterflies are paint chips punched with a Martha Stewart punch. Paint chip cards are ideal for ombre patterns since they have multiple shades of each color.
The rest was just gluing in place. The background is a Lifestyle Crafts embossing plate, lightly sanded. And the sentiment is PC-printed on vellum.
Jazz, the cat, was in heaven over being allowed in the studio for a few minutes while I worked.
