Stampin' Royalty - Monochromatic Challenge Guest Designer

I was honored to be the guest designer for this week's Stampin' Royalty Challenge. This is a fabulous weekly challenge with talented designers to inspire your stamping and papercrafting projects. Click the link to visit this fantastic challenge and play along!

For this card, I wanted something sophisticated and used another new favorite DSP -  Love Letter. Love Letter is a monochromatic series with riding hood red and basic black paired with very vanilla. Although not apparent in the photo, the Lovely Letter Monogram stamp is embossed with clear embossing powder to give a bit of dimension. A vintage brad, also another new item, works beautifully with the style of this paper for a sophisticated, vintage look.

Stamps - Notably Ornate, Lovely Letters Alphabet
Paper - Love Letter DSP, very vanilla, basic black card stock
Ink - basic black
Accessories - clear embossing powder, circle punches, vintage brad, basic black satin ribbon, dimensionals, sticky strip
