Printing Christmas cards


Never done your Christmas cards?  Styrocut and monoprint are easy and fun ways  to start. This year I combined both methods. I punched dots on a styrofoam veggie wrapper and painted a black Christmas tree on it with blue sky, for every card.

When printing, the dots stay white and only the black tree and blue sky are transfered. Afer the fun starts, deciding what to do with the white dots.

Avez-vous déjà fait vos cartes de Noel?  Facile et amusant avec la gravure sur styrofoam  et le monotype. Cette année j’ai combiné les deux . J’ai fait des trous sur une plaquette de styofoam, genre barquette pour légumes. Puis j’ai peint en noir un sapin sur ciel bleu pour chaque carte à imprimer.

A l’impression, les trous restent blancs et seulement le sapin noir et ciel bleu sont transférés. Après, on décide quoi faire de ses petits flocons blancs.

  1. aloha and fun on this, Benedicte. you make it look easy, but i know—and can see—you put a lot of thought into this before you actually started to work it. . . . even tho you leave some of it to respond to as you work. very cool. and fun. aloha.
