Circle Die Cut As A Base - Boho Flowers Stamp Set


When I first started playing with the Boho Flowers Stamp Set I just stamped, colored and die cut a bunch of the images. I wasn't quite sure what I was going to create, but I knew they would be fun to layer. After pushing them around a little, I had the idea to layer them onto a circle die cut which I cut out using the Gina K Designs Double Stitched Circle Wafer Thin Die. The circle then became the base to frame the sentiment and stamped images.

For the sentiment, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder onto black cardstock. Then, I used the new You Die to die cut the rest of the sentiment. I cut the word out of black cardstock 4 times and glued them together to give it a bit of dimension.

For my second card, I used another circle die cut as the focal point. This time I added the butterfly and swirl images from the Boho Flowers stamp set.

I love how the circle die cut helps the stamped and die cut images as well as the sentiment pop against the card base. Do you have a favorite shape that you like to use to frame your stamped images?
