Simple Thank You

Good Morning! Today I thought I would share with you a card I made using a technique I have seen but have never tried before. It was fun, and the creative opportunities are endless. This is a 4x4 card. I made the base from some kraft color cardstock. With a stamp from the Tags, Frames, and Borders set from CTMH, I stamped this image on a square piece of cream colored paper in a close pattern with several inks from my CTMH stash.

 I used my new Martha Stewart Circle cutter to cut a circle from the best area of the stamping. I then cut another circle to mount it on and finally a third scallop circle cut from the Art Philosophy cart.

  The effect the stamping creates is a custom pattern paper designed by you! So fun! I always stayed away from circles, because as most of us know, perfect circle cuts can be hard to come by, lol. This Martha Stewart Circle cutter worked wonderfully.
 I embellished with a few buttons and some CTMH twine. So simple but so cute! Thank you for having a look. Have a great day!


  1. What a great idea! I love this. I have got to use my stamps more often in creating paper designs. TFS
