I spent all afternoon making 12 cards with extremely non-traditional dp's: I used several of the hippie-looking ones from the "Bohemia" line with some brown satin ribbon and a blue mat, and a stamp from Zum Gali Gali that has 2 interlocking shofars (ram's horns which we blow in the synagogue as part of the service). It came out very autumn-y. I wish I had remembered to scan one before sealing the envelopes. whoops.
On the inside, I wrote: Shanah Tovah -- best wishes for a happy and healthy 5768.
Other things you can write on the inside are:
Best wishes for a sweet new year.
May you be inscribed in the Book of Life
Wishing you all the sweetness of the New Year ( which works very well with an apple or honey stamp)
hope that is helpful
Now I see the secret of making of the best persons. It is to grow in the open air, and to eat and sleep with the earth. -- Walt Whitman
