Simple Monogram Card

This is the first year for my side of the family to draw names for Christmas gift giving...I picked my sister-in-law's name out of the hat.  I was super excited about this (not that I wouldn't be with any one else's name) because she really likes to send cards out to people.  I actually made 300+ cards for her and my brother's wedding to give to each person who attended as their little special gifts...They were very simple cards but everyone liked them!  It was a much more personal gift than just a piece of candy, bubbles, or other little things you may see.  Anyway, she loves cards and she is also a teacher and sends notes out to parents frequently.  So, I started thinking about what I could do for her Christmas present this year, and I came up with three different cards...Here is the first one.  I made her two packs of 8 and packaged them nicely with stamped envelopes to match.  Her name begins with the letter "M", just in case you were wondering.  :)  I know you can't see the inked edges really well, but the white card is inked much more than the other two colors on the frames.  I also inked the silhouette with white ink.   I couldn't get the exact picture I wanted.  I will have to work on that.  I cut out the two frames and the silhouette with my SCAL software as well as the "M".  You could also use a sticker for the letter if you wanted to do that instead.  I inked the edges, rounded the corners, tied the knot and it was done.  So cute, simple and classy.  I chose the teal and pink because these are her two most favorite colors.  Hope this inspires you.  Remember, it is always homemade!
