1. Using the paper cutter, cut the 8 1/2” x 11” paper in half to create two cards 8 ½” x 5 ½”. Score in the middle using the Simply Scored to create the fold.
2. Cut a 5 ½” x 3 ½” piece of Whisper White.
3. Ink the letterpress plate using Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry, Real Red, Old Olive, and Pacific Point and place on the Big Shot Plate. Carefully place the cut piece of Whisper White on the plate and add the clear plate gently. Run through the Big Shot and carefully take apart.
4. Cut a 5 ½” x 1” piece of Rich Razzleberry.
5. Attach the ink piece (once dry) to the cardfront and add the piece of Red Razzleberry below using Snail adhesive.

A few notes:
To clean the letterpress plate off, use Stampin’ Mist with a piece of paper towel.
Only Craft Stampin’ Spots can be used on the letterpress plates. Classic ink will bead and dry too quickly.
