A few week before Christmas, my friend Sarah invited me and a few other gals over to make holiday cards. I was thrilled, because I had been feeling guilty about not having made any effort toward making or otherwise procuring any cards this year. Even though I love to do crafts, sometimes I need a little motivation. A card making party was the perfect solution. Sarah and I had both dabbled in linoleum block printing before, so we pooled our supplies and added some new ones Sarah was nice enough to pick up.
Two of our friends joined the fun. I was safety girl, reminding everyone not to carve toward their other hand. But only because I have stabbed myself on more than one occasion, and it’s not pleasant.
Sarah chose two intricate leaves from a plant book and printed them in various colors. It turned out beautifully!
