I made my xmas cards in October  Embarrassed
In fact, I started them in August. How sad am I?

The reason I started them so early is because I wanted to make lots of them. In total I made 45 cards. How did I do this? I carved a little stamp of a Christmas pudding out of a rubber, and stamped away with acrylic paints onto a green background. I made that with diluted drawing ink. (You could use watercolour, but ink doesn't move.) Then I simply glued the 'toppers' onto a 50 pack of cards I bought from Hobbycraft, and decorated with a gold sticky border. And there they were!

Let me know what you think.
