Every good little southern girl needs monogrammed notes! Sweet Ashley doesn’t know it yet, but she’ll be needing several notecards this afternoon. LOL! So, I used my new JustRite monogram stamps (a birthday gift from a sweet, sweet friend) and the sketch today to make a few cards. The monogram stamps are great for quick, easy and personal gifts!
When I got done with the cards last night and was stamping her monogram on the back of the envie, I thought that a scalloped edge would be oh-so-pretty. So, I used my large scalloped rectangle Nestabilities from Ellen Hutson and did just that! Here’s how:
Supplies: scalloped rectangle dies, envelopes and your die cut machine
Put the sealing edge of your envelope through the center of the die, and align just the edge of the envelope with the edge of the die. Make sure your scallops will point downward. If you used the other side of the die, they would be inverted.
Layer the envelope and die with the appropriate plate sandwich for your die cutting machine and press as normal.
One other thing I wanted to comment on: Square cards sometimes present a problem with square envelopes, so I try to use standard when I can. Don’t be afraid to hang your ribbon off the edge. This will still fit the envelope just fine without bending or messing up the tags.
Check out the other sketch samples by Cambria, Charmaine, Jenn, Mary Jo, Laurie, Sharon and Beate while I encourage a 7 year old to complete her necessary social notes. I bet you’ll be done before me, and a whole lot happier! Have a wonderful Friday!
