Monograms

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!!


Thanks for stopping by ~
