Mark’s Finest Papers -
I love the circle frame, but wondered if I could make that circle into an oval. Why yes, yes I can!
To do this, I first stamped my sentiment onto the patterned paper using black pigment ink and clear embossed. Next I cut/embossed the oval using Spellbinders oval die. I took that oval and laid it onto my table, then put my stamp positioner on top of that and formed the circle into an oval, taking care to make it match. I inked the stamp with black pigment ink and stamped onto the light pink cs and clear embossed. Align the Spellbinders Labels 13 and cut/emboss. Cut/emboss Labels 11 from darker pink dotted paper. On light pink card front, emboss lower edge with Textile Texture Cuttlebug folder. Stamp flourish onto top corners using Black pigment ink and clear emboss. Pop up layers as desired and attach to card front. Attach bow of black/white dotted organdy ribbon.
So, there you have it. You can change the shape of a clear stamp. That makes it even more versatile.
Thanks for stopping by!
