In an age when printers are common, using rubber stamps can set your cards apart from the crowd. From Valentine's Day cards to birthday cards to "Simply thinking of you" cards, rubber-stamping is a creative way to personalize greeting cards and express sentiments without resorting to mass-produced messages. Whether using letters, images or a combination of both, the ideas for rubber-stamping cards are limited only by the creator's imagination.
Rubber-stamped cards can say "Thank you" better than any machine-made version. Whether the stamped words are "thank you," "heartfelt," "cheers" or "a tip of the hat," the time you put into the card makes the message that much more powerful to the recipient.
Notes of condolence are more meaningful with the added stamp of an image that brings to mind your connection to the person or to the deceased. Other ideas include religious symbol as appropriate, a simple heart or the words "in our thoughts."
Welcoming a new baby is personalized by a card stamped with the image of the newborn's tiny feet, a bootie, a diaper or the ubiquitous stork, using number and letter stamps to include weight, length and time of birth. Including older siblings in the activity of stamping the cards is a fun way for them to shout-out the arrival of their little brother or sister.
