This year I decided to deviate from the Christmas photo cards and make some old fashioned cards instead. I dug out my linoleum supplies and got to work. I carved out a very basic nativity scene. Next, I stamped it on "O Holy Night" sheet music (that's my favorite Christmas song). Last, I sprinkled a little glitter on the ink before it dried. It was nice to have a project like this. Usually, I just make one of something so this was kind of therapeutic for me.
I made 27 cards. Now that I'm done, I have a new respect and appreciation for block printers. For whatever reason I couldn't get the ink/pressure right. All of them came out a little faded or a little too blotchy for my taste. But I'm just going to say that ads charm, right?
What cards are you making this year?
One more question, what do you do with the photo cards after the holidays? Do you save them or throw them away? Promise I won't tell anyone.
