I was never one for using pattern paper on my cards, only in scrapbooking (which I feel I am neglecting right now- I have a stack of photos yet to be scrapbooked.) I have seen lots of beautiful cards using pattern paper lately, so I thought I'd get some and give it a whirl. The green snowflake paper came from Michael's and the blue paper is part of the Ski Slope designer paper from Stampin' Up. Both of the cards were super simple and turned out fabulous. I think I might be hooked on pattern paper! Just one more item to stock up on!
