"When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul or brings joy,
care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life."

Year of Cards #13

Christmas Card #1

This card has a bellyband that wraps around the back of the card then adheres in place on the right edge. The card was a bit thick and I needed something to hold it closed once the gift card was in the envelope.

Below are links for the construction of this card.
