Circle Background Frame With Guest Designer Lisa Lara

Happy Saturday, Lisa Lara here as Guest Designer.
I sure had fun with this one and loooooooooooove the results. 
Today I'm sharing how to make a fun frame and background technique using this stamp I designed 

Inside of card. 
 I just used a strip of wide washi tape 1 1/4" from the bottom. 

Matching envelope.  
I love how this looks.  Wouldn't you like to receive this in the mail!

I combined two dies to make my frame. 
Love how this works.  I just lined them up and used washi tape to hold them in place when I cut. 

I stamped on my foam piercing mat and got a great image.  
This was a breeze too because I did not clean off my stamp each time.
I went from lightest ink to darkest, when I went from a dark to a light ink, I just stamped off on scrap paper first. It went fast and is fun. 

I love seeing how designers are using vellum lately.
So I cut out a piece of vellum to lay on top of the frame.  It gives a soft shimmer to it. Loved how it turned out.  Then I laid the circle on top and cut it out for my frame. ( I used vellum tape to adhere so you don't see the tape). Love that stuff. 

Here you can see the difference of with and without the vellum. 
Which do you like?
