We start making Xmas cards early (are also having another go on 2 November). This gives more time should you wish to get them printed off for you at the printmakers.
Masses of choice for making cards and we have done them for many years now with a lot of you getting them printed at the printmakers instead of making individual cards.
PEP Printers in Tarring Road (up the road from Heene Road) will be able to help you, to see where they are click here
In the past we have used a printmaking plate called a Gelli plate - available on Amazon as far as I know. If you look on the link here for inspiration for the cards you will find lots of blogs about using a Gelli plate to print with. Other equipment is
acrylics - plus any golds or metallics you like
paper doilies or cut pieces of paper, leaves pieces of string
paper - watercolour is great but you can also use thinner cheaper paper
brushes, rags, water and newspaper (can get messy!)
images that inspire or old xmas cards, be inspired by the internet especially looking on Pinterest for Gelli Plate images
