There is stamp-frame clipart at

To get your strip you may have to step and repeat whichever you select.

Thank you very much. Would I insert the picture first then the stamp over it or vice versa?

I would say try both, it will be quicker than waiting for the reply!

I agree with Hagar - try both and see which gives you best results. Using CorelDraw I would have made the stamp strip into a mask of the perforations with cut out windows inside, and placed each picture on a layer further toward the background than the perforation mask, so that the window cutout allowed the picture to show through and masked the picture edges. I'm not sure if this can be done in Draw as I haven't done any complex graphics using it.
