SUMMARY- This collection is designed to be glued down onto Christmas cards. The only one that doesn't really work for me is the coronet representing the Lords A-Leaping - looks like a crown to me. It's not a fair criticism, though, as I certainly can't think of anything better myself that would be simple enough to fit with the rest of the motifs. I was thrilled to finally get hold of a copy of these patterns.
