Instead of going down to my studio to continue making my Christmas cards, I was browsing card making blogs, my favorite procrastination strategy. I came across a tutorial on The Kraft Journal on making cards using double sided paper cut so that three patterns go on one card. I gathered my paper and spent the rest of the day making many cards.
