Circle Circus in Classic B&W

If I didn’t scare you away yesterday with my Shabby Chic cards… thanks for hanging around!  As promised, today I’ll be returning to a more classic style of card making using the Circle Circus Stamp Set (#115778 / 10 pcs. /$28.95).

The focal image is actually stamped three times and then punched with the scallop circle punch, 1 3/8” circle punch, and finally 1” punch.  I  borrowed “thinking of you” from my Kind and Caring Thoughts Hostess Level 3 stamp set… but m ay change up the greetings when we do this in next Saturdays Stamp A Stack… you’ll get to pick your own appropriate greeting.

This is a very simple and easy to make two layer card.  The random images are all stamped onto a white 8 x 10.5” fold over of whisper white cardstock scored at 4”.  The fold over is then mounted onto a 4.25” x 5.5” piece of Basic Black Card Stock. 

I love the new Modern Label Punch… it was used to punch out the “Teeny Tiny Wishes” greeting on this card after it was stamped.  The New matching Magnetic Movers & Shapers Die was used to punch the black background piece.  Eyelets and a touch of ribbon complete the card!  This would make a fabulous set of note cards as a gift for a friend, wouldn’t it?
