Crazy Card Party Challenge #11 - Monograms

So the challenge for this week is to use Monograms.... well let me tell you... I had a blast with this one and used a bunch of product I have had for a while that was never used!  

  1. Cut a piece of white cardstock at 5” x 6 and using the embossing folder emboss the cut cardstock piece.
  2. Trim to fit a A2 Sized Card and glue to a card base.
  3. Trim an additional piece of cardstock to fit the centre of the frame and draw a circle with a pencil in the centre of this piece of cardstock.
  4. Using the Leaf Stamp from the October Afternoon Stamp set stamp the leaf twice on each side of the circle in green ink.
  5. Stamp the Letter A from the Scraptivity stamp set in black ink on this same piece of cardstock.
  6. Also stamp the sentiment  Just a note from the PTI Stamp Set in Black on another piece of paper and trim to a banner shape.
  7. Die cut the larger flower and stamp with the Lawn Fawn matching stamp in pink ink. And glue to the centre of the leaves.
  8. Stamp the smaller flower in pink two times and add to the sides of each leaves.
