You will need: 1. Card stock (these are little French correspondence cards which come with matching envelopes) 2. Tracing paper 3. Hole punch, circular or any other fancy shaped punch 4. Lino cutter 5. Artist's carving block - but really, it's just a big eraser 6. Ink pad 7. Pencil 8. Fancy string or ribbon 9. Optional reindeer 10. Optional snowflake.
This is my first effort on the carving front - but to see the master at work I highly recommend this video by the very talented Geninne D. Zlatkis.
Geninne has also posted some great stamp carving tutorials on her blog which you can find here.

Perhaps these could do with a bit more sparkle and glitter - but really, I like to keep these things simple. It's the words on the other side that really count.
