By stamping images onto shapes such as discs or circles, unique embellishments can be created to adorn greetings cards for any occasion.

The same technique was used to make this wedding card. Instead of stamping onto white circles or discs, a light silver-gray card was used and this gave a classic sophisticated feel for this card to mark a wedding.

This card was created by randomly placing the discs or circles on the page. By allowing the discs to overlap slightly the textured effect was enhanced. The circles were colored using marker pens and this gives a more vibrant color, the edge of each cardstock disc was also colored. This emphasized the shape and bought added color to the card.
