Step 1: Draw and Carve
If your design is going to be more than one color, use the same size block for each color. Transfer the art for each color in the same spot on each block so it lines up when you print all colors. For example, our card is three colors: white - beard and trim on hat; red - hat, nose and shirt; black - outline.
2. Using a Speedball linoleum cutter, carve away what ever you don't want to print.
Step 2: Roll and Press
3. To print your first color, squeeze out the ink on to a flat surface (like a glass palette) and roll it out with brayer on to your carved block. We used Speedball water-based ink and brayer.
4. Pick up the block with the ink on it and press it down on to your paper (folded note card) and press. Try to line up the edge of the block with the edge of the paper if you are printing more than one color, so each color will line up. Let the ink dry on your card before printing the next color.
