Create a Set of Coordinating Handmade Cards

While you’ve got your papers and embellishments out on your workspace, make a few cards that coordinate and can be used either together as a gift set, or separately for future occasions. Use different techniques and tools, like the Banner Punch Board, Word Punch Board, and Square Punch Board. If you’re making a creative mess, you might as well get as much out of it as you can!
