Best Wishes!

Unfortunately, I've needed a few wishing you well cards recently. I always vow to make more than I need at the time to get some in stock, but it never seems to happen! I must get better at stockpiling cards! These two particular cards will be sent to men, so I wanted to keep them toned down a bit. I know there is a bow and a few adhesive pearls, but we'll just tell them they're stickers. The above card used all Papertreyink Cardstock along with Bitty Dot Basics Designer papers. Ribbon is also Papertreyink. Nestability Labels Two and small circle dies were utilized and a ticket corner punch.
Do you notice I have a center stamped area, and TWO borders surrounding the center? That's right folks, you have the ability to place two outer rings on this 2" stamper! I chose a decorative center, another decorative ring and then chose to spell words for my outer ring. The center and closest outer ring are from the set, Special Occasion Deluxe Kit and can be seen HERE. This versatility enables me to create precisely what I need to say. Gotta love that! Other notables of this card are the paper piercing, hemp twine and the adhesive pearl placement. Martha Stewart border punches for edges. Same focal point center as card above but with a whole different feel and look to it! Let's take a look at the set with the 2" round block. I chose my center and the first outer ring from this set, Special Occasion Deluxe Kit. Stamping them in different ink colors allows me to pick up the same colors in the designer papers I chose.
You get a bonus with this Wood Stamper 2" set, a 15pt font set and center image. I have stamped the flower vase center for another project, you're gonna love it! Here is my block, set up with what I stamped. Below on the left you can see a close up of the stamped piece. The ideas and possibilities are endless with JustRite Stampers.
