Just Rite Damask Borders Monogram Card

This is for my aunt Karen. I made a whole set of these cards for her for Christmas. She is a crafty, sewing, talented person and I think this shabby look is perfect for her. The colors for this card came from Basic Grey papers called Sugared.
The background is stamped with my Fine Houndstooth Scrapblock and a distress ink called Old Page. I love how subtle it is.

I stamped the monogram onto thin muslin with Palette Ink. The JustRite Damask Border set is a complete set. It comes with a wood handle and a font that fits inside the border. Wonderful set!!!! The muslin was cut using a Nestabilities circle. It cut very easily in my Cuttlebug. I ran it through twice and only had to snip away a few strands still connected.
thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!!
