embossed & monogrammed (PTI blog hop)

embossed & monogrammed

I love a pretty monogrammed card set.  This one's for the february PTI blog hop.

I went for simple but elegant with this one, mostly because I wanted an excuse to play around with my new "mini blooms" stamp set and the pink zing powder I ordered.

I embossed the florals onto a piece of rustic cream cardstock and cut the letters with the cameo silhouette.

A pop of aqua mist cardstock and a set of kraft envelopes rounded out my set.  I'm thrilled to have this gift on hand, all ready to gift to Sofia's teacher at the end of the year.  I procrastinate on everything, so this is making me really proud!

Thanks for stopping by - happy hopping!
