How to Create Stamp Illustration (Frame) (Illustrator)

In this section we will introduce you how to create stamp frame illustration in Illustrator.

Having illustrations inside the frames makes it look stamp-like.

You can also arrange photos inside the frames. You could also use failed photos so that they would not look so bad in the frames.

Step01 Create Vertical Sides of Frame

Create a precise circle with [Eclipse Tool] while pressing Shift key and place the circles (Alt + Drag) vertically.

Once you have all the circles, select all and align them with [Alignment Panel] and [Group]. (Ctrl + G).

Step02 Create Bottom Frame

Alt+Click the midpoint of the precise circle created in Step-1 with [Rotate Tool]. Set the setting like above and copy and paste them to the side.

Step03 Remove Two Circles

Select the two circles shown above with [Direct Selection Tool], remove them (Ctrl+X), select all and group (Ctrl+G).

Step04 Create Side Frame

To make a frame on the right, Alt+Click the midpoint of the left side frame with [Rotate Tool]. Set the setting shown above. Copy and paste to make the right side frame.

If the corner circles are out of alignment, adjust them.

Step05 Create Stamp Frame with Object Division

The color is changed for better understanding.

Create a rectangle which fits into the midpoints of the corner circles using [Rectangle Tool]. Select all objects and select [Pathfinder > Divide].

Step06 Divided Image

Move the object inside with [Group Selection Tool] and remove the rest.

Now you have the stamp illustration.

Done!

Done! Now you can change the frame color and place any pictures you like.

Customize

I arranged Photoshop modified pictures in the frames.  Even if you do not like the original photos, stamp illustration will give a whole different impression.

This is perfect for seasonal greetings.
