Hand Stamped Christmas Cards

Although my Christmas cards this year are handmade I didn’t make each one individually by hand in the same way I have in previous years, instead I created the design in Illustrator and printed them from the PC. To give them a more hand-crafted feel I decided to create a stamp from lino & use it to stamp each card and envelope. I decided on a nice simple robin and holly design in red ink. He’s pictured above tidied up in Illustrator, and below as he looked when stamped by hand on the inside of each card and outside of each envelope. That kept me busy for some time!
