Making Christmas Cards
Every year I make Christmas Cards, but don't feel left out if you don't get one from me. I only make them for other people to send. I'm never organized enough to actually send them myself. Hopefully some year I'll get around to sending them myself and then I might receive some that aren't from politicians or real estate agents.
In the picture on the left are some styrofoam trays, the kind that you find under quick sale veggies. I cut into them with an exacto knife and printed them onto the cards using speedball printers ink. I liked the distressed look because the white flecks where the ink didn't print reminds me of snow. The holes could then be filled in by doodling, collaging or stamping with some eraser stamps. This was lots of fun, but much more labour intensive than my usual cards. Each one is slightly different.
Merry Christmas to everyone in interent land!
