I'm still snipping along with my Christmas cards. It seems that with every card, I make changes.
My hope was that I could find the perfect sparkly background paper at the craft store. There was none to be found that was remotely like what I saw in my mind's eye. A trip to the Dollar Tree solved that problem though. They had gift bags that were made of exactly the right paper and were cheaper than craft store paper.
The difficult part now is to figure out which of all the styles I have done the last few weeks will go to whom.
