    several in my family used to make their own Christmas cards this way, I have saved some that my late mom had kept. Very nice upstate NY rural winter scenes.

    It used to be a production line, iirc we would put the paper on the table and lean on the inked block for a second, then peel it off and set it too dry.
       We didn't know we were doing it wrong :>
      thanks!

    now I am thinking we uised to rub the paper on the block to transfer the ink...hmmm, maybe sister remembers.
