I have an elegant trio of cards for you today, all in gold and white. We'll take a look at them and then talk a bit about what goes into the making of a great Christmas card. We're making these cards at our Christmas Retreat this Saturday, too. They're even prettier in real life.
So... what makes a great Christmas card?
-- layers (or appearance of layers)
-- texture (vellum always works well)
-- touches of gold (or silver)
-- bits of sparkle
-- touches of embossing
-- rich embellishments
-- rich colors or bold elegance (such as this set of cards)
-- good images
Be sure to coordinate the inside of your card and the envelope, for a complete look of elegance.
Now... design your card including as many of these elements as possible and you're likely to come up with a great Christmas card!
