Monogram Gift Set

I've been busy with the last minute Christmas preparations today. And my best guess is that's what most of you have been doing as well!

My neice will be here tomorrow for Christmas to introduce her new fiance. I'm excited about meeting him. We agreed not to buy gifts for the adults, but I couldn't resist making her a little something. After all, I didn't buy it, so I kept my word! LOL!

Since my neice is in her twenties, I wanted something fun and maybe a little funky for her monogram cards, so all the designer paper is from the Basic Grey Urban Prairie paper pad.

I used my JustRite Trompe Script Font with a Harmony Classic Circle Stamper I . It's the 1 5/8" size.

Just to mix it up a little I used various Spellbinders dies. The first card uses the Labels Two Nestabilities. For the second card I used Labels One. I think it will be back in stock on Friday...I hope?

I stamped using Ranger Broken China Distress Ink. On the last two cards I used a border from my JustRite 10 Design Centers and Borders set.

All the self adhesive rhinestones are from Hero Arts .

I absolutely love it that you can mix and match all the JustRite products to get the result you're looking for.

I'm going to package these in a clear box with envelopes, and then put it in a cute Christmas bag with a handmade tag. I think she will like it.

I want to take this opportunity to wish you all the Merriest Christmas ever! I hope you enjoy some special time with family and friends. And I hope we are all mindful of the reason we are celebrating tomorrow. One of our little traditions is that the grands sing Happy Birthday to Jesus. We even had a special birthday cake for him last year. :-)

I will be back after Christmas with something new, and probably a few pictures of the grands as well!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I do LOVE them, but I don't want to use them, they are too pretty!!! As artsy as I am, you think I would have started doing stuff like this years ago...but I don't think I'm that patient. I had so much fun Christmas Day, the babies are so much fun and incredibly photogenic!

Love you,

Hi Michelle,

I just found these cards and love them. Could you please tell me what kind/color of ink you used?


Melissa said...

Oops! I re-read and found out what ink you used. Sorry about that. I guess I should have slowed down and read the post instead of just drooling on my computer! LOL
