My first Christmas card for 2011 was made for a Christmas in July card swap. I just loved this double-sided Christmas paper by Graphic 45 from their Christmas Past Collection.
Both sides of the paper were used for the front of the card. Inside the card I used a vellumy like paper, that matched the green on the front perfectly. I embossed both ends of the green paper and when opened the card said 'Merry Christmas'. Unfortuneatly, I did not take a picture of the card opened. The ribbon was placed behind the green paper and threaded out the sides. The poinsettas are stamped and gold embossed on red and green vellum.
I love the layout of this card as both sides of the double sided paper are on the front of the card. This is one card layout that I will be using again. Hope you like it too. Thanks for looking.
