Monogram cards

Hi Everyone, I'm sitting here with the sun shining, can't believe it, after so much rain and snow, it's WONDERFUL, (even though we have had a couple of rain showers today)

 Here are my cards for today, 2 today, because 2 of my brothers had birthdays within a week of each other and, as I had downloaded the monogram cutting files from Krewella Designs HERE  I thought I would give them similar cards.  I have used paper from A Day to Celebrate - Boys by Katie Creates at  Stuff to Scrap Simply Scrapping Stuff. I have used the papers a lot recently so look out for more LOL.

No I haven't made a mistake in the order of the letters, I have placed them in the order they were done. LOL,  these monograms were so easy to cut, even though I made them smaller than the original cut file.


 The card with B on, I printed the background directly onto the card, cut the other papers after printing, and placed them on the card.   I cut a cream frame with my Cricut and matched it with the balloon paper then cut out the B in the same cream and layered it on a navy background and 3D'd onto the frame which was also 3D.

The A card  I printed all the papers directly onto the card, I used shadows in PS to show them layered. I added 3D bunting from the same set and cut the A from card printed with the background design and placed it over silver mirror card, I tied a length of cord to the A then 3D'd onto the card.

I used the same sketch for both cards -   I was going to enter the challenge of the sketch, but time went too quickly for me.

Hope the sun is shining where you are.

I shall enter the following challenges

Hello Faith ..thanks for the visit to my room . We are certainly seeing lots of sunshine here and it is very hot in Adelaide .
How clever to use digi papers in layers straight onto card base .Love the big letters too .Both cards are quite masculine cards so I bet "the Boys "love them .
