I love the Christmas tree from the Holiday printing plate set 3, which we've paired with plums and silvers to create an elegant holiday place setting.

Letterpress Inks (Silver & Custom Plum)
To create the custom plum letterpress ink, mix red and blue inks using your palette knife (which comes in the Accessory Tool Kit). Play around with the colors until you get the shade of plum or purple that you want.
First letterpress the silver Christmas tree. After the ink has sufficiently dried, letterpress the plum tree, overlapping the silver one slightly. I used the "Happy Holidays" plate from Holiday Set 4, but feel free to add whatever phrase you'd like. Print your phrase of choice on a separate piece of letterpress paper. Then layer this piece over the top of the trees. This makes it look as if you didn't print the bottom of the trees. Layer a coordinating ribbon over the top with double-sided take to hide the paper "seam".
Throw in a family photo and make it your holiday card to send out to family and friend. Attach it to a wrapped present or insert a gift card for the perfect present.
