It's nice to colour purely to relieve stress and as an enjoyable activity, but why not put your talents to work and create cards you can giveaway to family and friends this festive season? Something that is personalised always means more, as you have taken the time to decorate it yourself and give that extra special handmade touch. These 20 colouring cards are feature beautifully intricate designs for the Christmas period, with reindeer, doves, trees, decorations, holly and ivy, they really get you in the mood of holiday cheer!
The illustrations are printed on heavy duty cardstock, enabling them to stand up to alcohol pens and any other media you like to use. They can be very detailed in places, so as long as you're willing to spend time with your finest of fineliners getting into those small areas, you'll have a blast. Each card is blank on the reverse, save for a small printed link citing the image source, allowing you to customise it however you wish. It's a shame there aren't envelopes included, as the size fo the cards is quite odd (7.5 x 5), so it can be difficult to locate ones that fit. However, you don't always have to think conventionally to make a gift- I think one of these would look wonderful in a box frame, given to a loved one for them to hang each season for years to come.
I'm still working on my cards, but here's one I started this morning using my Staedtler Triplus fineliners (even the 0.4mm nib is too thick in some areas!).
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. You can find it on Amazon here:
