Woodblock Christmas card prints
Wood block printing method
These cards for Christmas were made by the woodblock printing method. The holly image depicted in this simple design was cut from wood using delicate chisels and cutting tools. The carved wooden block can be used over and over again and hundreds of cards were printed from this single woodcut. Instead of playing board games with the children this winter why not get them interested in this wonderful tactile hobby. You can even substitute a potato for younger children to carve.
