I made this simple mini set of cards using a fun Hampton Art stamp set.
The set has 6 different postage stamp shaped images to celebrate most any occasion.
I used the Paisley Embossing Folder (Provo Craft) to emboss 6 different colors of cardstock and stamped my images on coordinating designer paper.
