Thank You Cards That are JustRite

Today Stephen and I start our official packing (packing boxes, affixing labels to the boxes, etc.).  Wish me luck and much patience!  I’m so not looking forward to this.  We leave this Thursday and I keep pushing that date to the back of my mind.

It’s hard to believe it’s been two months since Stephen asked me to make thank you cards for the high school graduation gifts he received.  The summer has just flown by so quickly.  He asked me to make something masculine with no ribbon, I interpreted that to mean no bows and he asked for masculine colors as well.  After a few prototype cards this design is the one he chose.  He asked me to keep it simple and I think I was able to accomplish that (no watercolors). Instead of using the typical masculine stamps that I have, I decided to monogram the cards.  I love the DIY monogram stamper from JustRite, it was perfect for this project, I used the Small Round Monogram Stamper for the monogram.  I chose Stampin’ Up!’s Chocoloate Chip ink for the monogram color, I simply used the re-inker to fill up the JustRite ink pad for the stamper. For the thank you sentiment I used a set of sentiment stamps from Flourishes.  I made seven cards of each design for a total of 28 cards.

    These cards are adorable. I am always in a quandary when it comes to a masculine card. I just started using the Just Rite Monogram Stamper and it is wonderful! Your card is a great inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

    Jerri, these are just perfect for a guy…I know it was hard not to put some bling, bling, etc. on them, but you did good, gf! I know he appreciated them as well. I will be thinking of you this weekend as you prepare to send your son off to college. I remember when my daughter left Georgia for VA to go to school so far away from us, but it was good for her and us. She was over 10 hours away! Be brave and you will get through this w/flying colors.
