Stamp your frames

This is my newest stamp. Nothing new in the design because I already made several frame stamps. But this one is nevertheless something really special: I made it just for myself! ^^ 

Now the question came up what to do with a frame stamp. Most of the times I use little frames for post adress on snail mail envelopes. 

Here I used some (rather cheap, you can see the colour spreading a little bit) red and violett ink pads on old cardboard... and cut out the inner part...

From the same old cardboard (you can see some glue dots and stuff like that on the surface, I just recycle good cardboard I get from packages and co :)) I cut several small and long pieces for the sides...

...just glued 4 pieces together... I wanted a little 3D effect in the end...

...glued the finished pieces on a different (also recycled) card board... see the layers?

...and just added my stamped frame with the cut out on top.

The finished frame :)
