Monogram Stationary ...

Good morning! I'm hosting the Great Impressions Blog today.

I enjoy making personal stationary for friends and family, and decided to make some for myself using the Monogram Flourish "R" (E607). For this set of 3-1/5" x 5" note cards I stamped the monogram with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored it a bit, and then went over the flourish with my Copic 0.3 Multi-Liner Pens. Each Monogram was cut out with one of my dies, and popped onto my airbrushed background with 3D foam squares. These were quick and easy to make.

I picked up some iCraft Gold Deco Foil for another project I'm working on, and decided to make another card featuring the Monogram Flourish "R" (E607). I stamped the monogram with Versamark Ink, embossed it with Clear Embossing powder, and then rubbed the foil over the monogram. Mind you, it sounds easier than it was. I had to use a lot of arm strength to get the foil to adhere to the monogram. I'll have to pick up some gold embossing powder for next time. The stripes were easier to create. I used 1/8" Scor-Tape for the lines, and then rubbed on the foil. I love how elegant this card turned out.
