Pizza the ac­tion

Quick Cards Magazine - - Quick Fixes -

My daugh­ter has started show­ing an in­ter­est in card mak­ing, and would like to make her own Christ­mas cards. Can you think of an easy de­sign to get her started? Vicky San­der­son, Bury St Ed­munds

Dorothy: How about try­ing ‘pizza print­ing’? As I’m sure your daugh­ter is itch­ing to use some of your equip­ment this is the per­fect tech­nique! Cut the Sty­ro­foam pizza base in half and then one side in half again. Draw the tree on one quar­ter with a pen­cil, pok­ing holes for baubles. Paint the tree print and then lay white card on top – rub over with your hand. Leave to dry and cut out. On the sec­ond quar­ter write let­ters back­wards. Print with red ink and cut out. Turn the half pizza base over and brayer with blue paint, print­ing di­rectly onto the front of the card. Stick the tree in place and add the sen­ti­ment with foam pads. The print bases can be used sev­eral times so your daugh­ter could make lots for fam­ily and friends. Join in and get that pro­duc­tion line go­ing!
