I found this card in my stash of stuff. I had never used it and didn't quite care for the sentiment. So I yanked off all the embellishments and decided it would make an interesting template of sorts. I then cut out the four squares onto some sturdier cardboard so I could copy them as needed for the cards below. The semi circle on the bottom corner is part of the paper, but I thought that would be a good element to be able to change around a little.
For the card below I used patterned paper (another great chance to use up some scraps). I wanted to experiment some more with my bird stamps from Crafty Secrets. I brought the circle in through a metal rimmed tag.
Another chance to use scraps on the card below, but this time I embossed them. All four squares fit perfectly into the Cuttlebug embossing folder, which made it quite easy. Then I added some more of my Crafty Secrets bird stamps. I punched the circle this time before I stamped on it. I then slit each edge to put my ribbon through.
