monogram for gertrud (PTI)

Knew this blog hop was approaching.  Totally forgot about it until an hour ago.  Was going to sit it out but then I was chatting with Kelly G. about having lots of ribbon and never using it and I need a card for Gertrud's 70th (this lady is in my workout class!) so I decided to go for it.

Was I thrilled to find that little branchy stamp in the Lovely Layers set?  Yep.  Did I iron my ribbon scraps?  Nope.  Should I have?  Yep.   Was I totally inspired by one of the the photos in the inspiration board over at Papertrey?  Yep.  Recognize it?  Magenta, gold, circle, stripes....

Happy hopping.



Supplies G:
Paper: cardbase Buttinette, CS Neenah, other Bringmann
Stamps: PTI, alpha Hampton Arts, circle frame Kelly Panacci
Ink :Versamark
Tools: die MFT
Other: gold embossing powder, ribbon scraps

  1. What a great way to use up bits of ribbon! No ironing required. (If they need ironing around here, I ditch them. Sssh!) Very elegant Monogram!

  8. Brilliant making your own fancy monogram with that little branchy image, Maria! Score!! You obviously do better under pressure than with lots of notice!
