|Background corrugated paper: Fancy Pants. Bulbe paper, burlap |

I have used a ornament die (Lifestyle Crafts) for all the bulbs, but you could use a circle cutter for the same purpose. I also use smaller dies if I want multiple ornaments on my card - they give me more flexibility when it comes to the design. As you see, I have pretty much repeated myself design vise on the cards above.
What do you think: is it a good idea to use non seasonal papers for Christmas cards?
