Monogram Set

I made a set of note cards for a friend having a birthday.  She is one of the last great note writers.  Her thank you notes are always so heartfelt and well written.  She is a master of a lost art in my opinion. To have such a way with words would be a gift! 

I first laid out the monogram on my computer in a word processing program.  I got 4 images on a piece of 8.5 by 11 inch paper. I printed the sheet out. Then stamped a large zinnia in Golden Glitz Ink over the top of the printed cardstock piece. I cut them to size, matted them and placed them on red card bases. 

It might have been better to try stamping first, then printing over the dry stamp.  Next time I'll try it that way!

Thanks for stopping by.

Stamp - Stampendous

Beautiful! I think it is easier to print first before stamping, harder to align the other way around, great idea using the printer!
