For this years Christmas Cards I printed using the polystyrene that you get at the bottom of shop brought pizza.  I used a craft knife to cut out festive shapes, and using a pencil marked on indents (for the birds eye & tree decorations).  I got to work printing using some acrylic paint, and then using pen added details.











Happy Holidays everyone!

If you used polystyrene that was already used, you could put this on the RRR board as well!  These are beautiful!

Very interesting re-use of "garbage". I like your method. And a neat set of designs you chose. Simple, yet intricate all the same. Very festive. I can't pick a favorite. They are all lovely  Grin Happy Holidays to you, too.

Thank you all!  Smiley

LadybugsAndBumblebe es - Great idea.  I plan to make some birthday cards soon using this method, so I shall try to remember to do a tutorial post on the RRR board then.
