Card Making Process: Embellishments with Punch

TIP:  Get your money's worth by using small punches to make embellishments for your cards!

A special friend has a birthday tomorrow, and hubby and I are taking her out to lunch today.  Even though she is a card maker herself, I know that she will surely appreciate a handmade card from a friend!

Here is the one that she will get today:

This card was actually made using all scrap papers.  After adding the flowers and ribbon, I knew that it needed a little extra something.  To stay with the feminine theme of the card, I used my butterfly and heart punches to make embellishments.  It's simple, sweet, and easy to do with matching paper scraps.  

TIP:  While supplies are out, make another card right away to keep in your stash and use up the scraps.

After the first card, I realized I had enough to make another card, which I did right away to keep in my stash.  
I also entered this in the Whimsical Wednesday post over at The Memory Nest.  

Question for today:  Do you make birthday cards as you need them?  Or do you keep several in your "stash"?
