the circle window card

In this card I used a combination of 3 dies from the Braided Circles die set to create a window. This provides the perfect area to stick your focal point on or to stamp your sentiment. The card design is really simple and would work with any cut out but that decorative detail around the window really takes it to the next level. The stamp set I used here is the Party Animal by Pinkfresh Studio. It’s from an older collection but I love to go back and give some love to stamps I have collected over the years.

the circle panel card

In this example I used again the same set of dies but this time I created a panel. Again with lovely details and perfect to add my focal points on top. This card layout is great no matter what cut out you use as your focal point … really versatile and easy. In this case I used designs from the Enjoy the journey stamp set, again from an older collection.
