Hi, Tom! 
Thank you for this class! There are so many informative ins and outs about letterpress, you gave really clear and crisp instructions. Honestly now I'm fascinated with this printing technique, especially in terms of using minimal color pallette in mix with the relief surface of the future print: it gives a lot of interesting oppotunities!

My project is the New Year's greeting card.  I used my old sketch from artjournal as a reference and created the new composition in Illustrator.

Originally I was going to use analogous hand drawn textures, but then I decided that I want all the shapes to be more geometric, so I drew the whole thing in illustrator.
The color pallette was chosen to make the composition look soft and retro. I love to use a lot of abstract little details and I finished my card with these cross-shaped highlights.
