Holiday Cards 2005 by Amy Crook

Holiday Cards 2005 by Amy Crook

In years past, when I had more time on my hands, I used to hand-make all my holiday cards individually — with potato stamps. I used watercolors to brush colour onto the carved potato pieces, and then stamp them out. This particular set took 3 separate stamps, the figure, the gift, and the halo, each of which had to be done as a separate step. I think I made about 100 of these, and that was the year I decided never to do it this way again.

Hope you’re having a great holiday season!
