Today's project is a letter press challenge.  I used a Sizzix Christmas embossing folder on a kraft paper.  I used Colorbox Mix'd Media Inx in schoolhouse and inked up my folder!  Most of the ink came off but since this ink is a pigment, it did stain a little.  The card base is a Recollections kraft card.  I used The Paper Company Metallic Uptown Gold to mat the embossed paper and the embellishment.  The embellishment piece is cut from Tim Holtz Ideology Paper Stash Kraft resist Seasonal and the charm is from TH Ideology Muse tokens Christmas.  I used a button from Joann's and miscellaneous fiber.

each card is a little different.

Next up is Lucy!
