My mom will be retiring in August so I made her a gift set of six monogrammed note cards using my new JustRite Damask set from Stamper's Dream. I also decorated up a clear box for her to keep them in. Here's a picture of the clear box. The green circle is Herbal Garden Medium. I added some green mini flower rhinestones above and below the letter L.
There are a total of six cards, two of each design. The layout of all six cards is Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch. On each card, the white monogram circle and the mat circle behind it are up on separate layers of foam tape. The larger Prism White circles were all embossed with my Butterfly Impressabilities template and then sponged with Pretty in Pink ink. The white scallop border behind the Porcelain DP on all six cards was done with a Victorian Piercabilities die. Bows were tied with my Bow Easy.
Here are pictures of each card. The green mat behind the monogram on this one is Herbal Garden Medium. Green mini flower rhinestones were added above and below the letter L.
On the next one I used clear mini flower rhinestones on the monogrammed circle, and the mat behind it is Baby Pink Light (same as the card bases).
The green mat on the last one is Spring Willow Medium and I used the green mini flower rhinestones again.
