JustRite Stampers Clear August Release -- Be Strong

Hello! Welcome to the final day of JustRite Stampers August release! Today we are introducing CL-02165 Be Strong, a clear set (yes, you read that right ... it is JustRite's first clear set!) of 21 frames, images, ribbons and sentiments.

JustRite Crafting For a Cause
In an effort to find an early diagnostic test or screening tool for Ovarian Cancer, JustRite Crafting For a Cause will donate 20% of the sales from Be Strong (introduced tomorrow) and Strength and Courage in 2011 to Ovarian Cancer Research. To learn more about the symptoms of this “silent killer “ visit Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.

My card is in honor of my brother-in-law who went through treatment for prostate cancer last year. I am thrilled to report that he is doing well and is now cancer-free! I created my own background paper by stamping and clear embossing the ribbon on a sheet of vellum, then I stamped a few of the sentiments (Faith, Hope, Love) around randomly. For my main image, I stamped and colored the ribbon, die cut and framed and otherwise kept my layout fairly simple so I wouldn't cover up too much for the background.

Here's a complete look at CL-02165 Be Strong:
