This monochromatic card uses the faux linen technique and the stamp set Always. To recreate the linen technique (which shows up very faint here) you use a piece of glossy cardstock and rub sand paper over the card stock first horizontally and then vertically. Once you have created as few or as many lines as you would like you use a sponge to rub ink on the cardstock. The scratches that the sandpaper created will cause the paper to pick up the ink differently than the non-scratched surfaces and it will create a linen look to the paper.
