Today my dear wife is making our Christmas cards. She cuts up the Christmas cards from last year, rearranging the pieces to make a new card, while at the same time adding pre-printed stick-on Christmas messages, different colours of frosting, and more – whatever takes her fancy.
It’s nimble fingers that are needed. Some cards end up with up to four layers – a kind of 3D card. She tells me it’s called découpage. All very clever.
