I embroidered the monogram in black on a piece of light beige linen. I figured that color combo would be neutral enough to fit most home decor schemes. In case your wondering about the white edges, I had to leave the cardboard on the edges for the pic because we were travelling and I didn't want the frame to get damaged.
I used a beige linen blend and black Sulky embroidery thread from Joann's. I backed the linen with a layer of easy knit interfacing in addition to using two layers of iron on stabilizer. Once embroidered the lined was wrapped around a piece of cardboard and placed in the frame.
The wedding and couple were elegantly gorgeous. It was held at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington DC and it was the most beautiful setting imaginable.
Wishing a lifetime of happiness to the happy couple!
