Heart2Heart Challenges: Monogram

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to my blog! I was able to come home for a couple of days and got to play with my stamps so this week's project is a treat. This week's Heart2Heart Challenges theme is one of my favorite themes, its all about "Monograms".  Monograms are a great way to brand something such as a note card, family heritage or personalized gifts. My project is a Monogram Notecard featuring the Close To My Heart Monogram Stamp.  This stamp is still available online through Close To My Heart.  I also used the La Vie En Rose B&T patterned paper along with some black and white card stock.



Here's a list of the tools and products used to create this card:
  • White Daisy Card Stock
  • Black Card Stock
  • Cranberry Pigment Ink
  • Ranger Superfine Clear Embossing Powder
  • Black and Gold Ribbon
  • Red Glitter Tape
  • 3D Foam Tape or Foam Squares
  • Tape Runner 
  • Heat Tool
  • Scallop and Circle Punches
I used the Close To My Heart Cranberry Pigment Ink and the Ranger Super Fine Clear Embossing Powder for the Monogram.
