Monogram cards gift set

My boss's wife made us these delectable chocolate dipped pretzels, including the drizzled striped white chocolate over the top. Almost....I say almost too pretty to eat. But I did eat them, they were nummy. So as a small thank you for her always baking for us I thought I would make a monogram card set for her. I sure hope she enjoys them.

I spied this card example last night on the Cricut message boards, here. I loved the crisp white with the striking red. I changed it only a tiny bit, why mess perfection I say.

Each card in my set is just the smallest bit different too. The border punches and the ribbon are changed up just a bit from card to card.

I decorated the envelope with the same cuttlebug embossing folder I used for the white portion of the card.

The "C" monogram is from CTMH chocolate alphabet set. The whole monogram scallop is pop dotted up for a little dimension.

I simply packaged the whole set up inside a clear envelope saved from Creative memories sticker packs. I tied it with yet another red ribbon and added a tag stamped with a little thank you sentiment. Easy peasy but I think pretty darned cute.

Find inspiration everywhere! Go... Create something fun & fabulous. Enjoy!
