15-The front of the card is the logo printed in black on the French paper and the back is the contact info and services printed in PMS 4625 to closely match the front. The two sheets are then laminated together (by hand with Super 77). Then I use Avery mailing labels printed in PMS 376 with my name and logo knocked out and hand applied to the card so that it wraps around the end of the card covering a portion of the front and the back. This gives the card a tactile feature and adds more color to the edge of the card.
