This gallery features stamp-centric cards prepared for the Smithsonian National Postal Museum's holiday cardmaking workshop held on the first Saturday in December (see www.postalmuseum.si.edu).

Samples include simple pop-up winterscapes and menorahs; weaves from recycled greeting cards; mini albums and book ornaments; accordion cards; 3D tree ornaments and trees assembled from layered envelope corners or greeting card strips; cards with removable ornaments for the recipient's tree, window or door; holiday bookmark/gift tag/ornaments, and a couple of mosaic card fronts made of holiday stamps from around the world made by a workshop participant. Newest additions: snowman accordion cards with postage stamp hats, etc.; holiday message on a garland to hang in the window; a New Year's coloring page; and a "Card for All Seasons" that I made at the beginning of 2017 for two good friends.
Puzzle Weave: pull out the strips & reassemble the art on the recycled card ...
