Make It Monday ~ Stamped Square Frames Challenge

I like this technique of making frames out of stamps that are not frames.  If you want to know how to do this, check out Dawn McVey's video HERE

Once I decided the simple layout I wanted for a Wedding card that I will need in a couple of weeks, this card came together fairly quickly (for me~that would be 1 + hours ;-)

The frame is created with a pretty little stamp from Fall Elegance by PTI which I stamped twice on each of the four sides in White ink onto a Kraft panel.  The sentiment is stamped in Black. The base card is square, so the square frame looks a lot better than my last attempt.
