Monogram Cards


I enjoy making up fun little gifts to leave on the bed when we have overnight guests. This is a set of monogram cards I made for my nephew's girlfriend staying with us Easter week-end.


I had a lot of fun using three sets of Guidelines stamps from Papertrey Ink to create the pretty designs on the bottom half of each card.


Each card features a strip of monarch butterfly trim on the inside and envelopes stamped to match the cards.

Supplies and Tools:
Dies/Punches: Stitched circle, Mini Flower punch, Embroidered lace border punch (Martha Stewart), Monarch Butterfly Trim (Martha Stewart)
Embellishments: Pearls
Embossing: Christmas Quilt Embossing Folder (Couture Creations)
Ink: Worn Lipstick, Broken China, Peeled Paint, Seedless Preserves, Wild Honey Distress Oxide (Tim Holtz)
Stamps: Guidelines (Papertrey Ink), Guidelines Two (Papertrey Ink), Giga Guidelines (Papertrey Ink), Victorian Butterflies (Rubber Stampede), Coffee House Alphabet (Inkadinkado), Nature's Beauty
