Good Morning. Today I am participating in the PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop which is all about Monograms. I chose to make an anniversary card for a friend to give to his wife.
I decided to give the card some elegance by embossing the background with sparkle embossing powder in a damask print. I used 1/8 scor-tape to add glitter to the top and bottom.
I added the pink mulberry spring roll paper cinched in the middle to look like a bow. I think the card ending up being reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe.
This next picture is of the inside but the colors turned out horrible in the editing. The card base is a light grey that I stamped with A.muse Seattle ink on the large damask. The sentiments are Versafine black. The bottom is a piece of card stock that matched the mulberry paper cut with PTI edger die 1. I decided to covered it with more glitter because glitter is the gift that keeps on giving - LOL.
I am happy with how this turned out. I struggled a bit with the monogram theme. I think it is easier to monogram a piece of decor rather than a card.
Finding the bling letter is what really turned this one around. Once I saw it my head started running with ideas. And to think it was only $.35! I really should go back and get more. These would make pretty wedding cards. Oh and sweet birthday party invites for my not so little girl...I see a diamonds are a girls best friend theme in the future!!
