I am sooo excited! I just got my order with SU new "Lovely Letters" and "Together Forever". The first time I saw the Spring/Summer 08 catalog, I knew I had to get these sets. I knew these would make the best monogrammed cards....simple, but elegant.
I played around with a few designs, and this is the one I liked the best. I decided to make a bunch with different colors to show different options available, but would most likely sell the sets in one color combo and I plan to make a box to go with the sets I sell.
I had to break up the cards into different pictures because they all didn't fit in one picture.
The first set is "Bold Brights" (Lovely Lilac, Pixie Pink, Gable Green, Real Red, and Brilliant Blue) .
I used the circle from "Together Forever" and added the "S" (for Stephens) from "Lovely Letters" stamped in Versamark then embossed with black onto Whisper White CS. Then I used my crop-a-dile to emboss dots along the edge of the white CS (click on the picture for a better view of the border). I attached that to the different color cards. The dark cards will need a white CS attached to the inside of the card so you can still right something.
The second set is an assortment of colors (Night of Navy, Always Artichoke, Ballet Blue, Bravo Burgundy, and Bashful Blue in front).
The 3rd set are the in-colors (except River Rock, I don't have that yet...
Purely Pomegranate, Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou and Wild Wasabi in the front).
The last set is Basic Black and Creamy Caramel. I think these may be my personal favorites (along with Gable Green).
I am thinking of making mini-cards sets (3"x3" cards) and scrap paper sets as well. I am actually working on an order, but I can't show it until the recipient receives the order!!
I think these will be great for my Spring Fling coming up in March. Post a comment on this thread and let me know which is your favorite color!
