I got this great Japanese stamp set for Christmas, and made a stack of these notes for our Christmas thank you's. Those of you who've seen my stuff before will probably recognize this black & white print as my 'recycled paper' - from the inside of security envelopes. I put a 1/2 inch strip of black to border the paper. Stamped the sentiment and the branch in black. Then I colored the branch with colored pencils and matted it in red for a punch of color. I like them!
