i like making "patchwork tile" cards - with a square punch and some interesting papers, it's easy and fast to arrange and adhere the little squares to cardstock and embellish with ribbon and metallic dots. i just use double-stick scotch tape for most of my cardmaking - it's no muss, no fuss. plus my neighborhood grocery store was getting rid of its office supply section and i bought like a jillion rolls of tape for 50 cents each....hence my adhesive of choice.
i also like scrappy cards - i save most of my paper scraps. some days i just pull out the bag, dump it on my table, sift through it and see what grabs me. this is a set of small notecards that i still need to make envelopes for, then they'll be a nice little gifty.
