With Christmas just around the corner, we made a start on our Christmas Cards in Crafty Creations this arvo.  As it is purely a volunteer class, I003a---blog am able to get more use out of some of my retired stamp sets, DSP, etc.  Each week we try & do a small technique & this week it was Heat Embossing.

We created a card similar to this one in one our Technique Classes last year.  It has been changed around a little for today’s class.
