Dafont.com offers a lot of free fonts, that is where I found the monogram. I used microsoft publisher to create my my image and sized it to 8 x 10 then printed it on 8.5 x 11 linen textured cardstock. The linen texture kind of gives it the look of being printed on canvas… however, I don’t think this shows up in the photo.
I found my frame at Big Lots for $7 and spray painted it black… it is actually a solid wood frame, not plastic, a great find.
The frame came with a very nice double mat too, a nice textured cream colored mat with a silver second border mat toward the inside. The cream color didn’t work with my color scheme, so I painted it with an inexpensive craft paint and left the silver part of the mat as is.
I really like how it turned out. Then I thought... wouldn't it look great as notecards....
Then I thought... it doesn't have to be a name, it could even be inspirational words...
Note cards available in my Etsy Shop. Thanks for stopping by.
