This is the page I use for printing the front and inside faceplates for box sets of Christmas cards. I can give you a set of 12 cards for $10.00 plus shipping. That breaks down to 3 cards each of 4 designs. The Peace Mandala comes in two versions. One has Merry Christmas and Happy New Year on the inside. The other has Season's Greetings on the inside. The Christmas Cactus mandala also comes in two versions with the same distinctions on the front. I think these are two of the most unique holiday cards I have ever seen.
This was one of the first mandalas I created, and was my Christmas card design for family and friends last year. I have revisted it, by adding the rays to the background and including a radial gradient. You can have it for your Christmas card this year.

Allow me to explain that technical title. I have added a radial gradient to the rays in the background. The center of the rays is darker and they get lighter at the edges. The effect is subtle, but the eye picks it up subconscioulsy for an enhanced sense of depth. I have made the rays into a template which can be superimposed on any backgorund and colorized as needed to fit any image. If you want this effect added to any previous image you have seen; just let me know, and I can make the change.
