Monogram Card

First I must welcome all the new followers. Thanks to Momo and her idea to share links to our blogs. I have visited so many creative people and seen some really great work. Thanks for sharing with me your kind comments and time.

I made this set of monogram cards for a friend who is getting married. I found the decorative paper at Michaels and knew she would love the vintage look. I can't remember which cart I used to make the monogram. I think it was the Gypsy font but I also played with Jasmine so I'm not sure. I used my cuttlebug to emboss the flowers behind the monogram.
The black card stock started at 5 1/2" by 8 1/2". The longer side was scored and folded at 3" and 1 1/4" creating a little different fold and look to the standard A2 card. The designer paper was then cut at 5 1/2" by 3" and also 5 1/2" by 1 1/4" to place on the front.
I bundled the six cards with envelopes together using the matching ribbon and topped it with a matching monogram.


Thanks for taking a look and may your day be blessed. Please leave a comment. I love to hear from others.
