These two cards were made using some Designer Series Paper scraps and a one inch square punch. The punch was also used to make the notch in the sentiment banner. Punches really save time! The card bases were embossed using embossing folders and the Big Shot. The brads are pretty heavy so I hesitate to use them on cards that are going in the USPS mail. But I'll need some graduation cards for friends here at the seminary and they can go into the intra-school mail so no need to worry about the weight.
