Monogram card

A friend of mine asked me to make her cards with a monogram which I hesitated to do because I don't have a good way to do monograms.   I used the JustRite stamp that I have which I am sorry to say is very hard to get a good stamp with.  The stamping gods must have been with me because I came up with a great looking card, and am excited to see if it is what my friend is looking for! 
Pool Party paper embossed with the Baroque Motifs stamp with clear ep.  The frame is made with textured Early Espresso embossed with the Saleabration embossing frame.  So Saffron butterflies cut with Beautiful Wings embosslits and one little pearl. 
I hope this inspires you to make something today!

Stampin'Up! Edgelits

Here is a great way to use the new Edgelits from Stampin'Up!  This card is made using the Adorning Accents edgelits die, Bordering on Romance stamp set, and the Beautiful Wings embosslits.  The pattern can be used for many different looks by just changing the butterflies to hearts for Valentines, or flowers for anything- you pick the greeting.
These are samples of cards we made at our last workshop.  Try using the pattern to make your own card.
