Happy Christmas Card Day! On this date in 1843, the world's first Christmas card was ordered to be produced by Sir Henry Cole, the first Director of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
From the Bath Chronicle:
He commissioned John Calcott Horsley to design two cards, a coloured example that cost people sixpence, and an uncoloured version for fivepence.
The uncoloured one, depicting a Victorian family eating and drinking, was sent to a lady called Marinda Cundy, and has been passed down through the family since that Christmas 170 years ago.
Here is the same technique using Stampin' Up! Brushed Silver card stock.
Don't you know it would be beautiful on our Silver Foil as well!
