I'm going to teach a Christmas card class in October. I have been looking for ideas for this for awhile now. I'm not all that thrilled with the Christmas paper this year. The last couple of years the papers for Christmas have been awesome and this year I haven't seen any that I just have to have. So I've decided to try to avoid the patterned paper this year. I will probably use up some stuff from the last couple of years on my cards I make for family or to sell, but for my class in October I will try and keep the patterned paper to a minimum. Lots of stamps, embossing and a few items from the cricut.
