Carving this took the whole day!  I made a little mistake on the bottom, the in the url.  (The "e" in shophandmade is nicked a bit...)



2 inches by 3.5 inches!  Way too small - had to do all of the lettering with a magnifying glass!

Neato! It just seems right that a stamper should stamp out her cards.

Thanks!  It came out of the need for business cards, and the want to have it reflect my skill level.  Now, people have an immediate sample of my work, and it looks "crafty".  Plus, it's cheap!

I think handmade cards are a really great idea. Out of all the jobs I've had that required business cards, handmade ones never crossed my mind.
Yours are perfect. I like them very much.

I think the little nick adds character to the stamp. I wouldn't have noticed it you didn't say anything!! You did a beautiful job!!
