The certificates are mostly computer printed -- but I left a corner free in which to rubber stamp a knight, surrounded by a splash of embossed gold. That came out really nicely.
And the cool part about the computer printing, is that (following Knihgt's suggestion) I scanned Coach's signature (he was Critter's teacher last year; I used a grade report) and my signature, and used them on the certificates. They really look like thery're fresh signatures, not canned.
Before I put away my stamping stuff, I made a couple of embossed gold otter stickers (out of plain white stickers that were included in the frame kit, but not needed), and rubber stamped the card for the gift certificate. An otter in a splash of gold. And raccoon prints -- my more subtle signature.
I put the picture in the frame I'd bought, and slipped it into a gift bag that Gaucha sent to me from Brazil. Tomorrow, all I have to do for Chess Club is print a new sign-out sheet, and pick up the cake on the way there.
Knight is a dear. Date night turned into craft night, and he not only stayed and kept me company, but he made suggestions, and helped with a critical eye during graphics layout. He's a sweetie.
Sydb had a Stampin' Up part tonight. Me-thinks I stamped more than she did tonight. ;)
