Letterpress Trick or Treat Card

Created by Kathy Alt

These new letterpress plates hold a lot of possibilities.  Used with the big shot and craft ink, they are really simple to use once you know a few secrets.

Secret #1:  I prefer to use the premium crease pad as my top layer on the Big Shot sandwich rather than the cutting mat as stated on the directions, it give a deeper impression.

Secret #2:  Always use a removable adhesive to adhere the cardstock to the premium crease pad so that it doesn’t move when making the impression.

Dies: Trick or Treat Letterpress plate                  #120980 (mini catalog, p. 42)    Square lattice Embossing Folder                             #119976 (p. 214)

  • For this card, I chose to use versamark ink and emboss with silver.
  • The black cardstock was embossed with the square lattice embossing folder and then the bats were punched out with the Bitty Bat punch.
