Beautifully Baroque Seasons Greetings

It seems like the summer has really snuck past me this year, so I am already starting to make some Christmas cards for friends and family.  I always like to come up with inventive ways to use my stamps.  For this card I used the new "Beautifully Baroque" stamp set from Stampin Up.  

Here is how I made the layered scallops.  I first stamped the image and then cut the image in half.  Then using 1 3/4" circle punch I followed the curved line to punch around.  I layered them up and added some satin ribbon.  

This could really be a universal card for any occasion  by changing the sentiment and colors.  I hope this inspires you to use your stamps in new ways.  

Happy Crafting,
