Letterpress Technique Christmas Cards

I am still finishing up with some of the ideas I had during the Honeybearz Designs 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop.  This is another letterpress technique card for the challenge over at Scrapbook Blessings Club.

I used the cutest little clothes pins that I purchased at Michael's over the Black Friday weekend with the additional sale coupon on top of the 40% off, it made for a great deal!  I hung the Tim Holtz kraft resist embellishments from an EK Success fiber and added a K & Co Christmas Cheer silver and gold brad. 
 I like how all the brads are silver and gold!

 The embossing folder is from a Sizzix Christmas two pack and I used American Craft pigment ink in Pine.  The mat is Bazzil Pomegranate cardstock.

I usually have a "prototype" or one card that is different that the rest because I am experimenting.  Here's the one for this set:  I decided against embossing the red paper, the color shoes up so much better on the kraft.

I am entering these in the following challenges: until Dec 19 must use silver and gold until Dec 13 must use letterpress technique
 Thanks for checking out my latest projects!
