handmade Xmas Cards

For the past 4o odd years, we have been hand making some 100+ christmas cards. As you will see it usually meant an outer and an inner card incorporating the main greeting.
Many techniques have been explored, collage, stencilling, wirework, beading, pop-ups, folding, puzzles, watercolour, and cutouts. We hope you find inspiration here.

We set ourselves these restrictions:

  • each card had to be unique
  • have a christmas theme
  • reflect dual nationality of the families
  • possible for all family members to contribute

Initially there were several limitations we had to work within, but over recent years they have become less of a concern:

  • available envelope size
  • reproduction techniques
  • suitable and available paper
  • be an adaptable process
  • be achievable within time available
