To make the stamps, draw out your design onto a rubber using a permanent marker; these envelopes are made with holly leaves, berries and a mistletoe branch. Using a craft knife, carefully cut around the foliage shapes from the top to the bottom of the rubber. As the stamps are quite fine, mount them on top of strong card. Cut the card just big enough to cover the stamp and glue it to the back. Allow to dry fully before using.
