Wood Engraving greetings cards

Wood engravings! As greetings cards! Why didn’t I think of this before!  I’ve had these two little wood engravings of boys riding animals – one on a pony and one on a tortoise – sitting in my drawer for a while now. They’re not particularly accomplished technically as I’ve not done enough wood engraving to get really good yet, but they’re quite sweet in a scruffy way.

As you will know if you’re a reader of this blog, I am doing a pop-up shop and workshops in London at the end of this week and I’ve been stocking up on prints and cards to sell.  I thought the engravings might go down well.  Here is a photo with the boxwood blocks they are printed from:
