Monogram Challenge

If you are looking for the Wilderness Blog Hop Day 2, please click here.

Good Morning Everyone! I'm so glad you came today because I am sharing a project for a challenge at Bitten By the Bug 2. Any cartridge could be used to create a monogram card.  I needed to make gifts for my daughter's Ballet Mistress and Artistic Director at the studio and this is what I came up with. Hope you like it:)



I used my gypsy to weld the letters in the middle with Plantin and Gypsy Wanderings.



4 cards fit nicely in the box with envelopes. I have gotten up to 8 before with envelopes too.

Recipe:
A2 size card using Plantin and Gypsy Wandering 
Box - Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 9"
Flower - Forever Young 4.64"
Belly Band - 1 1/2"
Paisley Embossing Folder 
Letters - Gypsy Font 2.75, 3.37"

Thank you for stopping by!

Annette

I especially like the welded monogram letters and the embossing beneath. I just finished my monogram notecards that I'll post for Wed morn but yours tops mine wonderfully.
