Other Supplies: Cardstock, Pearl, Pigment Ink, Ribbon, Watercolor Paper, Watermark Ink
Cut a piece of cardstock to size and fold to form card base. Apply clear watermark ink to the Botanical Vine letterpress plate. Apply teal and blue pigment inks to the same letterpress plate, carefully place the watercolor paper on top of the plate and deboss using your Big Shot, BIGkick or Vagabond machine. Remove the watercolor paper and let dry. Once dry, trim to size and attach to the card front. Die-cut a 3-D Flower from cardstock, assemble and attach to the card front. Embellish the flower center with a pearl. Die-cut Leaves from cardstock. Add dimension to Leaves by creasing and crinkling before attaching to the card front. Embellish with a ribbon bow.
If using regular cardstock with the Ink-its letterpress plate and not getting the impression you desire, place a thin piece of craft foam between the top cutting pad and your paper. Use pigment ink layered over clear watermark ink and medium weight (or heavier) watercolor paper - 100 lbs or more - for best results.
