Happy family greeting cards

Looking for a simple greeting or note card? Why not make one? Joseph, A New Orleans based-designer who grew up in NewYork, has this DIY holiday project.
Get a block printing kit from any arts and crafts store such as Yama.

Steps:

• Create your design on a piece of tracing paper.
• Transfer your image onto the wood block.
• Carefully carve your design. Once your design is all carved out, you can start printing.
• Lay your block down so that the design is facing upwards.
• Lightly dab acrylic paints onto your block.
• Use enough paint to cover the block, but make sure not to get paint in the crevices
• Place a piece of card stock over the wet paint and use a roller to transfer the paint
• Let the paint dry. You can even use you block print on fabrics and walls
