Monogrammed Mayhem!

I don't usually do much with monogrammed projects. I'm not really sure why. I guess it's because I don't often make projects for my own, personal use. That may all change! :) I've had some offers lately to start my own "invitation" business. While I don't think I'm ready to jump head first into this endeavor, I am excited to try out some ideas. This is the first thing I've worked on with that business in mind.

I cuttlebugged (I'm confident that isn't actually a word) a piece of mint green cardstock with the "Stylized Flower" embossing folder. I added the ribbon and bow over top of some cream paper. Then I stamped the "D" and punched it out with a circle punch and mounted it on brown cardstock that I also punched, with a larger punch.

This really is more of a notecard than an invitation. I will have to push myself in the direction of wedding invites. I'm definately not in that mode!! I'm excited either way to be trying something new and sharing it with anyone who will take a peek!! :)

This looks great, always like the nice clean lines on cards like these. You will really enjoy doing invites etc, I have been doing them for about a year now. Deadlines can be a little tough though.
