I wanted to make a purple card, so I used Wisteria Wonder cardstock (122922) as my base. I layered over that a mat of First Edition Specialty DSP (121878).
I created the "window" for my monogram by punching a 1-3/8 circle on the First Edition Specialty DSP using the 1-3/8 circle punch (119860), adhering the mat on the card base using Snail adhesive (104332), and then punching a slightly smaller circle on the Wisteria Wonder using the 1-1/4 inch circle punch (119861). This creates a nice border of Wisteria Wonder around my monogram "window."
I stamped "C" using the Broadsheet Alphabet stamp set (Wood: 118724; Clear: 127796) in Elegant Eggplant (126969) on Whisper White cardstock (100730), which I also punched out using the 1-1/4 inch circle punch (119861). I adhered the circle on the inside of my card for a nice contrast.
Here's a closer look at the monogram.
I stamped the "celebrate" sentiment using the Fabulous Phrases stamp set (Wood: 117002; Clear: 120501) on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock (100730), also in Elegant Eggplant (126969). I placed an Elegant Eggplant brad (from the 3/16 Regals brads, 119737) and then trimmed one end of the cardstock to create interest. I then popped it up using Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).
All of these products are available for purchase at my Stampin' Up! store.
Thanks for looking, and have a great day!
