I purchased this stamp over the summer. I thought it would be nice if the girls at my card club could stamp the back of their cards and add their initials or names with the year. I brought a black stamp pad and most girls stamped the back of their cards. That is a good thing. Most everyone appreciates a handmade card and it is good to add your touch to the front and back of the card. A little bonus available every card club class. Keep an eye out for one that suits you. Stampin Up! does offer a set with several different ones. If several friends get together one set will provide one for each person. What a good idea!
