The Pink Elephant Challenge #15 Monogram

I haven't done a monogram card before, I can't think why. I've done plenty of wedding and anniversary cards including the concerned parties' initials, but not a single letter.

I did this one in a hollow font on the computer in an enormous size and printed it onto card, before cutting out. I then embossed it with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. The tiny daisies resting on the D are from another Cuttlebug die. The huge daisies were stripped from a spray containing loads of flowers, which cost me £1 from Poundland or some such cheapy shop... much less expensive than Prima flowers, which is what I think that the spotty ones are.

The backing paper is from K&Co and the Oak leaves are from a Woodware punch.

There are no prizes for guessing who will eventually receive this card... my gorgeous granddaughter, Daisy!


  1. This card really stands out. It is so fresh and beautiful.

  2. Oh Daisy will love that - what a wonderful combination - the letter D and the daisies as embellishments. Great work yet again Chrissie.
