    a second layer of material comprising at least one card member together with a surrounding border region,said second layer of material having a top surface and a bottom surface, and, in turn, said at least one card member and said surrounding border region each having a top and bottom surface, wherein said top surface of said at least one card member is substantially co-planar with said top surface of said surrounding border region and said bottom surface of said at least one card member is substantially co-planar with said bottom surface of said surrounding border region;

    adhesive means operably applied to at least a portion of at least said upper surface of said first layer of material for releasably securing said at least one card member to said upper surface of said first layer of material;

    said at least one card member including means for releasable detachment from said upper surface of said first layer of material and from the surrounding border region without substantial portions of said adhesive means migrating from the top surface of said first layer of material to said bottom surface of said at least one card member;
