Monochromatic Monogram

The Lovely Letters Alphabet stamps are so pretty and the new Vintage Labels set is a perfect frame for the letters. I used the Movers & Shapers die to cut the blue mat behind the curly label. It's just a tad bigger than the punch. I love the shadow effect. The embossed lines were done on my cutting board with a stylus. I used the groove as a guide. Don't you think a set of these would be a great gift especially for a new bride or graduate? It's quick and easy.

Card Recipe
Lovely Letters Alphabet, Vintage Labels*

Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy
Ink: Night of Navy & Old Olive Stampin' Markers**
Acc: Scallop Trim Border Punch*, Big Shot, Movers & Shapers Die, Stylus

*Each is available free with a $50.00 order during Sale-A-Bration.

**If you ink the Vintage Label stamp with an ink pad, be careful not to get ink on the inside as it will smudge. I used the markers but the ink spots would work well by sliding it over the design.
