Occasions Card Wednesday - Christmas Cards using my Favourite Designer Series Papers

Just because a pack of Designer Series Paper doesn't have Christmas in it's name doesn't mean that it won't work really well in a Christmas Card.  

I have two favourite Designer Series Paper packs - Polka Dot Parade & Modern Medley - because they can be used for just about any type of card.

With Real Red and Old Olive Polka Dots and a Real Red Ornament from Ornament Keepsakes and the matching Holiday Ornaments Collection framelits.

The same design, a favourite of mine, using Rich Razzleberry and Marina Mist polka dots.  The 3.5cm squares are sitting between scored lines created using the Simply Scored.  So easy to mass produce using the place markers.

This time using Modern Medley with Basic Black on a Very Vanilla background.  Even though the 3.5cm square punch is no longer available I find it easy to cut squares that size with the Stampin' Trimmer or any accurate paper trimmer.

Of the three cards my favourite is the Rich Razzleberry and Marina Mist card.  I'd love you to leave a comment and let me know which one you like best.
