Monogrammed Cards and Gift Box

Monogrammed cards are a quick and easy but personalized gift. This set of monogrammed cards and gift box were given as a hostess gift last week at a workshop. I enjoyed meeting Erin and her family and friends. We had a good time chatting and crafting.

Here is a view of the card (OK- a similar card, I forgot to take a picture of the original card out of the box):




Here are the cards in the box:




Stamping Vogue Tips:
  • The gift box is made from a single sheet of 8-1/2 x 11 cardstock. I modified the directions on Martha Stewart's Seasons of Crafting blog.
  • The circular image from the Artistic Etchings stamp set makes a good background for the monogram when stamped in Marina Mist.
  • Use the same ribbon on the cards and the gift box to coordinate the items.

Supplies:
  • Stamp Sets - Artistic Etchings (W 118517, C 120573), Lovely Letters Alphabet (W 115030)
  • Ink - Marina Mist (119668), Early Expresso (119670)
  • Card Stock - Early Expresso (119686), Crumb Cake (120953), Very Vanilla (101650), Marina Mist (119682)
  • Tools - 1-3/4 Inch Circle Punch (119850), 2-3/8 Inch Scallop Circle Punch (118874)
  •  Accessories - Early Expresso 1-1/4 Inch Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (119961)
Keep on stamping!
