Ten Minute Thursday?

I just really wanted to share this card (technically I made it Tuesday, but I only uploaded it today). As I discussed over at my other blog I've gotten a little into letterpress, or at least attempting to make a faux version. This card features two of my designs that I had made into photopolymer plates. I inked them up with some grey ink (from Lifestyle Letterpress) and ran them through my cuttlebug on some luscious Crane Lettra cotton paper. I love the results! I also liked how the sun was shining, so I photographed it without the photo box. I think it helped the texture of the pressed design and the paper appear a bit clearer.
