letterpress flat thank you card

The last project I'm sharing for our 30 Days Of Evolution over on the We R Memory Keepers blog is a simple but elegant flat thank you card made with the Lifestyle Letterpress Kit and the Evolution Advanced. (For a full supply list, check out the original post HERE.) This card would make a great thank you for shower, wedding, or graduation gifts. It's simple design would make for easy bulk production, and you could change up the colors to fit with the color scheme of your event.

I used the confetti style background plate on the top half of the card with blue ink, and then the Thank You sentiment plate on the bottom half of the card with black ink. Designer tip: using the Ink Guides helps to avoid unwanted ink from getting on the letterpress platform and plate while applying the ink.

To finish off my project I wrapped some 3/8" grosgrain American Crafts blue ribbon around the flat card, and then added a gold metallic plastic bow from the Clearly Posh collection.

This card looks extra elegant inside a gold foil printed acetate envelope made from the Clearly Posh collection using the 123 Punch Board. Place a permanent glue dot underneath one of the gold foil polka dots to secure the top flap of the envelope, and you're ready to deliver your card!

P.S. Watch the We R YouTube channel for a video demonstrating how to make this card soon!
