CCT February Technique Challenge


Hello! At Christmas Card Throwdown we have a technique challenge for you!

 
This is a great technique for tackling that mountain of patterned paper (what do you mean, you don't have a mountain of patterned paper??)
 
I used a wonderful tutorial by our very own Patricia Hays. You can find it by scrolling down this post from Splitcoast Stampers. I'm not usually a fan of techniques that appear to require mathematical precision, but this really doesn't, it is very easy and straightforward!
 
We can't wait to see your cards! April x

My card is super-snippety so I am sending it to Di and Parsnip at Pixie's Snippets Playground!

    Hugs

    1. Thanks Darnell! I have said to Di in the past that my patterned paper mountain is so big it is making its own application to be a member state of the EU!! Xx
