Merry Christmas!




    This is my 2012 Christmas card. The actual size is 11" x 4.25", unfolded. The etching continues from the front to the back.I have been using small pieces of copper plate (scraps) for Christmas cards for several years now. I print the etchings and then run them through the printer-- digital text is easier than "drawing" the text in backwards to print. The red cherries are added with a watercolor pencil.
    I want to make a slideshow gallery of all my Christmas cards, but since I don't have prints of all of them, I'll have to print samples of most of them first. I've started this on the sidebar, and will add to it as I reprint samples.
    A merry Christmas and happy New Year to all!
