Monogrammed Notecards

These monogrammed notecards were so fun to make for my friend, Louise.  She and I share a love for all things purple, so I was able to use my favorite color!


The cards come in two designs.  First is the Perfect Plum with a Perfect Plum Taffeta Ribbon tied across the front on 3 score lines on the top and bottom.


The second design uses Wisteria Wonder, 2 score lines on the top & bottom, along with Wisteria Wonder DSP punched out using the Large Lace Border punch.  (currently on the clearance rack!)


The idea to add score lines to these cards came from the queen of Clean and Simple, Maureen Merritt.  She is a great teacher if you are looking for ideas on "cleaning up" your cards.  I wanted these cards to be flat enough for my friends to mail without having to add extra postage. 

I decorated the corner of each envelope too with a coordinating rose from the Collage Curios stamp set from the new Spring catalog.  (available Jan. 3, 2013)  The background script also came from that new stamp set.  I think I'm going to get a lot of use out of that set.


The entire set was wrapped up in a vellum envelope I made using the simply scored diagonal plate.  I wrapped the envelope with Wisteria Wonder Baker's Twine and added a tag using to tie it in with the stationary.  This was a fun gift to make.  I hope Louise enjoy using these notecards as much I enjoyed creating them for her.


Creative Blessings,

What a sweet gift! I like the colors and the score lines are a really cool touch! Something I wouldn't think of doing but makes a big difference! :-)

Heather - These cards are so simple yet elegant! These would make great gifts. I don't have the monogram letters but I should be able to print those out, add some background stamping and punch them out for the same look.
