Christmas or All Year Cards with Season of Cheer Designer Paper

At the Northwest Crafty Escape Weekend last month, I gave everyone who was attending on Friday a goodie bag that included a number of items including the Season of Cheer designer paper pack and some of the Old Olive Baker’s Twine (which is one of the weekly deal this week – booyah!)  I used this paper for their make & take projects and had fun designing 4 cards – 2 of which were Christmas Cards and 2 which were anytime of year cards!  Because I loved how even though this paper is in the Holiday Catalog and shown doing lots and lots of Christmas projects, it has patterns that are great for after the holiday season is over as well!


I tried to make that graphic so you could more easily see the patterns in the pack.  As you can tell, there are definitely “Holiday” patterns – from the hand painted ornaments or colored lights, to the holly berries and pointsettias.  So, you can make fun cards like this one:

I just mixed two of the patterns and a little bit of coordinating cardstock to create a quick holiday card.  I just love the hand painted look of these ornaments.  Just makes it feel cozy and homey to me. Smile  Want to make your own?  Here are the dimensions for the paper for this card:

  • Whisper White cardbase – 4 ¼” x 11”, score at 5 ½”
  • Old Olive cardstock – 3 ¼” x 4 5/8”, 1 ½” x 2 7/8”, ¾” x 5 ½”
  • Snowflake paper – 3 1/8” x 4 ½”
  • Ornament paper – 1 3/8” x 2 ¾”

But like I said, this paper pack doesn’t have to be just for Christmas.  Check out this Birthday card that we made using the same papers!

I just used some of the more generic patterns and mixed in some stamps from the Tin of Cards stamp set (see it is awesome even outside of that cute project kit!)

We cut bigger pieces of paper and adhered them onto our card front at an angle to get the look that we wanted.  Then just trim off the parts of the paper that hang over the edge to clean it up!  I also wrapped more of the Old Olive baker’s twine and added a little cardstock star using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  See, fun Birthday card you can use for anyone at anytime of the year!

Want the dimensions for this card too?  You got it!

  • Whisper White cardbase – 4 ¼” x 11”, score at 5 ½”
  • Multi-colored Hexagon paper – 3 ½” x 5 ½”
  • Yellow diamond paper – 1” x 5”
