I just finished up 2 dozen Christmas cards with my BFF S-P.
Being able to score the cards and belly bands w/out measuring is the best! I pretty much copied the tutorial here on SCS for Criss Cross Cards. I love the Dashing Designer paper.
The only thing I did differently from the tutorial is that I used 8.5 x 11" cardstock for the belly band instead of 12 x 12". It does leave a small gap, but since I was using the scallop punch it covers the gap w/ no problem and I didn't have to buy additional cardstock - I could use from my stash.
