To save the integrity of the original cards, I kept them in the plastic protectors they were in and made copies of the back side. One of the cards she had two of, so instead of copying the backside I used foam dots on just the corners.
I've entered this project here:

Everybody Art - no Christmas cards
LEJ Designs - anything goes
Artistic Inspirations - anything goes
