I made linocut holiday cards this year and am so pleased with how they turned out. The design is inspired by Prince so I printed with purple ink. While the ink was still wet my wife carefully applied superfine glitter to the Prince nutcracker in the center. It’s not Christmas without glitter!
Prince fans will understand the reference in “Let’s Get Nuts”, but if you’re rusty with 1980’s pop music lyrics I will help you out. The lyric is from 1984’s “Let’s Go Crazy.”
I printed the cards by hand with a glass baren from Iron Frog Press. Their Print Frogs, as they are called, are a joy to print with and well worth the price if hand printing is your thing. The glass baren is a work of art in itself.
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!
