Illuminations 1 Monogrammed Note Cards!

Good morning!  Sherry here today and I have a set of 4 monogrammed note cards to share with you.  I have found myself in need of blank cards recently, that I could scribble a quick note in, so I decided to make myself a few.


The cards are 4-1/4” square and use a cream card stock for the base.  This leaves the inside clean so that I have somewhere to write a quick note.  The designer paper used is Prima Stationer’s Desk.

The background from Illuminations 1 was stamped in Antique Linen on white card stock, then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Classic Squares SM.   The initial “S” from Capital Letters, Double Stroke was stamped in cranberry pigment and then embossed with a polysparkle clear embossing powder.  The edges of the initial panel were sponged with Antique Linen.


A background layer for the initial was die cut/embossed from the Stationer’s Desk paper with Spellbinders Circles LG.    The edges of this panel were distressed and then sponged with Antique Linen.


The brown panel was die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Captivating Squares and then two square layers to fit inside were die cut/embossed from coordinating designer paper using Spellbinders Square LG.  These squares were but in half on the diagonal, the edges were distress, sponged with Antique Linen and then sewn to the brown layer.


All layer are raised with Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares.

That’s it for me today - - thanks for joining me!!

Oh Sherry, These are just STUNNING. I really couldn't believe it When I saw The Supplies You had Used. They give such a look of a lot of Detail and yet this is actually all already in These Supplies. I will have to save a bit of Money. I'm just Imagining besides Making them for Myself, What a Wonderful Gift these would Make.
Thank You So Much for Sharing.
