Card with Monogram

When I got the Lovely Letters stamp set last year (for free thanks to Sale-A-Bration!), I fully intended to make loads of monogrammed cards with it. I’ve made a few, but I am hoping this set makes it into the next catalog, so that I can keep showing it off a while longer. We’ll know on June 1st, when Stampin’ Up! announces the Last Chance List!

The card colors were determined by the Tea Party DSP I used for the oval panel. I adhered the vellum scalloped border (also part of the Oval Scallop Frame Bigz Die) only in two places, behind the ribbon. The ribbon was threaded through two slots that were punched through all layers and was tied together with linen thread.

Thanks for stopping by!

    This is so sweet, Vera. I need to use that scallop oval die more – thanks for the wonderful idea.
