This is the card that I designed for my parents to mail this year.
I was originally looking for gold cord or twine to tie around the fold, but could not find anything locally available that matched the thought in my head. So, I added the stripe of gold mirror finish paper in the middle. (And, boy, did that gold mirror paper make this difficult to photograph!)
