Try making a printing stamp to make a big batch of cards easily. We made star Thank You cards. However, you could also use this method to make a large number of Christmas cards or party invitations.
You can also keep your printing plate to make another batch of homemade cards for another occasion.

We used a piece of craft foam sheet


Method
Cut a piece of foam sheet or polystyrene food tray the same size as you want your print to be.
Score a design in the foam or polystyrene with the pen. You want to press quite heavily to score a decent indent in the foam. You can try drawing a simple picture. However, random dots and squiggles also look great when printed. We drew a star and added some extra wiggles and spots.

Glue the foam piece to the block with PVA glue.

When dry, brush a thin later of paint over the foam and go over it with the roller. You want to try to get a thin but even coverage.

Press the printing block onto a blank card and lift off carefully.
