Bold and Elegant

A good friend of mine asked me to make some monogrammed notecards for her to give to her Mother as a gift. Turquoise is one of her favorites as well as black and white. So I knew just what to grab! SU! Tempting Turquoise and Tinkering Ink - Palette Noir paper. I had 2 different patterns so I made a bunch with each! I couldn't decide on the black 5/8" grosgrain ribbon with white stitching or the turquoise grosgrain so I just took my tape runner and fused them together making an entirely new ribbon all together! I LOVE how it looks!! I used SU! Shimmery White and cut ovals out using my Cricut machine as well as the 'H' for the monogram cut as well using my Cricut with the TT paper. I took my Black Stazon ink and ran it around the outside edge of the Shimmery White oval to make it stand out a bit more and adhered it to the ribbon with a square of foam adhesive. I really think these are bold, elegant and fun at the same time.

Happy creative Wednesday everyone!!
