from me to you: a holiday card

Every year, I send out a holiday card and for 2012, I was inspired by a quote
written by writer Neil Gaiman, which was about surprising yourself in the coming year.
The idea of a hidden surprise within a card, and brown paper packages tied up in string
led me to design a card that was sealed with wax and baker's twine, requiring the recipient
to untie the string and reveal the message inside the card.
