Monograms for the Holidays


Our next bingo winner will get a set of these simple monogram cards (on the right).  Since I don't know who will win yet, I made this one with a K for Kiran, and in her favorite color, green.  Of course, my favorite color is purple, and that inspired the congratulations card on the left.  Both of these are on a 4.25x4.25" base of Very Vanilla, and were quick and easy to make with the clear mount stamps.  If I had these in wood-mount, I'd have to use the stamp-a-majig...which is a great tool, but doesn't make for quick cards.


Well Scripted is the perfect set to match the lovely designs from Artistic Etchings--I wish they'd carried this stamp with its fantastic font over from the Occasions Mini!  Sadly, you can't get your hands on this set any more, but I'd be happy to let you use mine if you come over to stamp.

Today's bingo piece is the cardinal.  Good luck!

Cheers!
