Every year I make two sets of Christmas cards. Set one cards, the Extreme Cards, generally involve some sort of "in" joke, so these go relatives and close personal friends. (My mother claims the jokes are so obscure that *I* am the only one who gets them. This may be true.) Set two was originally for my online friends, and now I send them to co-workers and neighbors, too.
These beautiful stained glass tree cards, made from printable acetate and black card stock, are my set two cards.
The tree design was inspired by a project made with pasta sheets(!!) and permanent marker, seen on You Clever Monkey. I had to make a papercraft version!
