Another Monogram Card Set
After making my previous monogram card set, I got to thinking of
who else I could make a set for...no, not you yet! :) My boss's
daughter is getting married in January and I was invited to her
bridal shower this weekend. I went in with everyone in the
office for a nice gift, but I thought that she might need some
Thank you cards for all of the gifts she received. I did find out she
had already purchased some Thank you cards, so I decided to
make my cards generic enough that they could be used at a later
date for just note cards.
Her wedding colors are Marine Blue, so of course that was my
base color or as close as I could get with the CTMH Outdoor
Denim cs. The next layer is 3.75" x 5" white cs that is embossed
with a cuttlebug embossing folder called Ornamental Iron. The
medallion, an acrylic stamp from Clear Stamps called Crillon
Filigree from Scrapbucks, is stamped in CTMH Outdoor Denim on
white cs and hand cut. The Monogram is from an Edwardian
Script printed from Microsoft Word at size 72, cut with a
1 11/16" circle punch and sponged with Outdoor Denim.
The box bottom was made by cutting white cardstock to 8 3/8" x
9 5/8" and scored at 2" all around, cut and taped to form a box.
The box top was made with the measurements of 8.5" x 9 6/8" and
scored at 2" all around. The top of the box was decorated with a
card front and the sides had blue cs cut to size.
