Punched Mats for Christmas in March

It's the last Thursday of the month, so I'm showing a couple of Christmas card as an incentive to get busy making those Christmas cards.  Both of today's examples have doily-type mats created with paper punches.  This first one was made with the Marta multi-punch.  The multi-punches are specifically designed to create a variety of shapes easily. 

However, not everyone has a multi-punch.  Often an edger punch will work pretty well.  This next card shows a picture of one created with the Martha Stewart Doily edger punch.  This one I just punched and let the corners fall as they would.  However, it IS possible to create more planned corners when punching a rectangle with a border punch.  Instructions for doing that are here.
