Monogrammed Bride's Gift

I made this set of card about a month ago and never posted it! Darn, I AM getting forgetful! I think it's because I gave the cards to someone and there was nothing to jog my memory. You know...outta sight, outta mind? At least, that's my story and I'm stickin' to it! LOL!

I went to a wedding about a month ago, and even commented about it on my blog, and the fact that I bought a card to go with the wedding gift. I know...I'm a terrible person!

Well, the problem is that the mother of the groom is my housekeeper. She comes every other Friday and sees all the *stuff* that I have. So a week or so after the wedding she commented on the fact that I didn't make a card. (Hanging my head in shame here.)

Since I was feeling soooooo badly that she felt slighted, I made a set of 6 monogrammed cards for them in their wedding colors. Really, it's the least I could do to get back in her good graces, ya think?

I used the JustRite Damask Kit , and changed out several of the borders and colors so that each one was just a bit different. I used a few Rhinestones and Pearls to dress up some of the cards.

The center strip was embossed using a Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. The white background was embossed with a Textile Cuttlebug folder. I guess you can tell those are two of my favorites!

I also stamped the flap of each envelope, but forgot to take a picture before I gave them away. Drats....I hate it when I do that! I even tied a pretty bow around the clear box after I had them all assembled. I'm guilt free. And I DO love the way THAT feels! They have handmade cards in addition to the one I bought! LOL!

I have serious plans to do some stamping this weekend. Let's just hope my mojo is cooperating. So I will be back soon with some new things....I hope?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Very pretty! I love the bright white embossed background. It really makes the band and monogram pop!

These are so very pretty! You certainly made up for any hurt feelings with these beauties. I have a wedding coming up soon too and this is a lovely idea.

In your previous post you used detail clear embossing powder. Where did you find it? I have looked at all the places i know on the web including your store and can't find it. Please help.

these are just lovely and I'm sure the recipients felt very special when they opened them! I love the colors, beautiful design and how each one is slightly different while keeping with the same basic look. I'm sure all is forgiven:)
