I dipped into my stash of paper and decided to use some Roxie paper (now retired). I pulled out my Value Pack of Colonial White cards and envelopes (I always keep some of those on hand - they're a great value!) and went to work.
I kept things pretty simple:
- Cut a 4" x 5 1/4" mat from B&T paper.
- Cut a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Colonial White cardstock.
- Cut a 1 1/4" x 5" piece from coordinating B&T paper.
- Cut a 1" x 5" piece of Colonial White cardstock.
- Using the Cricut Artiste cartridge, cut a circle from the Colonial White cardstock to stamp the image and another circle 1/4" inch larger from B&T for a mat.
- Stamp the monogram image on the Colonial White circle.
- Layer the pieces.
- Before adhering the matted circle, cut a 1" piece of Silver Shimmer Trim and notch out the tail. Place it behind the circle before adhering it all to the card. (Remember that the Silver Shimmer Trim is self-adhesive.)
I made six cards per person and packaged them in a clear envelope along with the coordinating envelopes. Simple, yet personal!
