Today is the day that Lifestyle Crafts releases their new holiday dies (code “CRAP” gets you 20% off). I was fortunate enough to get to try out some of the Halloween line.
Because I’m a giant sucker for the letterpress, I HAD to use that, too. The damask printing plate is quite possibly my favorite thing on Earth. You’ve seen it before on my Easter mantel. I used violet in place of yellow this time and instead of Spring…
you get Halloween.
The bat is one of the new die releases. It comes with perforated fold lines to make it 3-dimensional. I left mine flat, since I wanted to be able to slip them into envelopes.

And since I was busy pressing and cutting, I decided to make some Halloween art for my bookshelves.
The background papers are letterpressed. (You can press regular old cardstock, it just doesn’t get the cool indentations that the fancy paper gives you.) The text is also letterpressed. The witch and the ghosts are part of the holiday release. Cute, right?
