Monogrammed Cards

These cards are for a very thoughtful lady. She is a "huge" Alabama fan, so I think she will really like these cards.

This is a set of 6 cards (2 each of 3 different designs). I bound them together with red toille.



The houndstooth paper is adhered to a white card base. The medallion was cut using the Storybook cart. Then, I distressed the edges. The "B" is cut from that cart using the "shadow" function feature. Then, I adhered the red dot ribbon to black ribbon before mounting it on the card.



The card is made from red cardstock. The scalloped square was cut using the Storybook cart as was the "B" (this time I used the the "Fancy" feature for the monogram). I used houndstooth ribbon adhered to a strip of white cardstock on the bottom of the card.



For this card, I used a red dot card base (this was from a set of boxed cards from Hobby Lobby - you can choose to use them as is, or decorate them as you wish). The monogram "B" was cut using the Shorty/Holes function on the Storybook cart. The black flower ribbon is adhered to black ribbon, then mounted at the bottom.


I also used the coordinating monogrammed "B" on the flap of each envelope.
I would like to make more of these. They are generic and can be used for a variety of occasions. Now, that is thrifty!
Thanks for stopping by,
Carol :)
