My good friend, Amy, issued a challenge to create as many cards as we can in one hour using SRM Stickers. I thought it was fun and a good opportunity to use up some paper scraps. I was able to create 5 finished cards and 3 half-way done in one hour.
It took me another 20 minutes to finish these:

Some tips when mass producing cards without them looking mass produced:
- Use simple sketches and use them on several cards.
- Use coordinating patterned papers, like those come in a collection.
- Pre-cut the patterned papers you're going to use. I cut them to 4" x 5.25" size, enough to cover the front of the card with a bit of the card base showing.
- Use different types of trims, decorative papers, etc, to cover the seams. In addition to lace and ribbons, I used Bazzill Bassics pre-cut borders on some of the cards above. They look like punched borders, but are already done and come in many styles and colors.
- Have lots of glue dots and Scor tape around. Use them to adhere quickly your embellishments.
- Add variety by rounding corners of some cards.
- Finally, SRM Stickers make it easy to add sentiments. You don't need to worry about stamp inking and cleanup.
