Handmade cards

Today I wanted to show you some cards I made a while ago.  These I based off of a card I saw on Pinterest.  My friend Linda and I were at Archivers when I made them.  I sure miss hanging out with her and crafting there!  It is my favorite place to "craft!"  There isn't an Archivers even close to me now.  Boo-hoo!!  We just moved to Branson, Missouri from St. Louis, Missouri four months ago.  I used to have to drive maybe 35 minutes to get there and every one of them was worth it! :)  Now it is at least a couple hours from me no matter what direction. Makes me sad.....sniff sniff... Ok, so I digress.  These are the cards I made one evening....
I cannot remember the line of paper I used at the time but I know I used my paper punches for the scalloped circle and flourish for the sentiments.  I also used my martha stewart score board to make the medallions.  Both took less than a half hour total.  Many times I will make two coordinating cards at the same time.  It is true what they say that assembly-line work actually makes the job go faster so while you're making one, it doesn't take much more time to make a second as well.  Do this every time you get a moment to craft and you will always have one ready for those last-minute gifts.  (I'm ALWAYS last minute!)  Gotta love a big bang for your buck!  Try making these today!
3 different coordinating papers of your choice
Paper punches or your favorite die cutter
