A Card & A Contest

A couple weeks ago I got a postcard in the mail from Fiskars with a couple of letterpress diecuts. It was to promote their new FUSE system that can diecut and create letterpress. The impressions on the cardstock were amazing!

Fiskars is running a contest on their Facebook Page to give away a FUSE system to one winner.All you have to do is create something with the diecuts, which can be printed from online if you did not receive them in the mail (only Fiskateers did).

I love the butterfly diecut and wanted to see how easy it would be to color in with Smooch Accent Ink. Well, it was SUPER easy–the ink from the letterpress did not run at all and the smooch was easy to control between the impressions on each section.
