I used a classic accordion card construction and combined it with a bezier curve tree I sketched in the software. It is cut from two pieces of card stock, that when glued together, create a 3-D self-standing card.
I also used a contemporary font to cut the message and the year into one layer of the card stock.
I mailed it in an evergreen envelope with a shorty Christmas letter on a red insert. I did mail all 70 of them on Monday, Dec. 16th but have learned that many on my list hadn't received theirs by the 25th. US Postal fail!
