Less is More wk20 - monogram

Oh dear... this week's Less is More challenge is sooo not me!  This week Chrissie and Mandi would like to see monograms.  I'm fairly sure I've never made a card with a monogram on, and I had absolutely no idea what to do.  I finally had a brainwave, but I think it's probably a bit of a cheat....


Is a 'P' plate a monogram?  Apologies if it doesn't count!  I've used a Riley Moose stamp, stamped in 'lady bug' memento onto Kraft card.  I decided not to colour him because I thought he looked quite cute as he was - or maybe I was just feeling lazy!  The 'P' was cut with a sizzix die, and the 'well done' is a Papermania stamp.  The corner square is a bit of a cover up because I smudged the sentiment.  Added some bakers twine from my stash.

Well Dex has been a bit brighter today and there's still no sign of spots, so maybe he's not getting chicken pox after all.  We'll see!  Thanks for all the lovely comments on Morgan's father's day card - he was so happy reading them :o)

  4. A P plate is a perfect example of a monogram... it is a letter which acts as an identifying mark!
    Superb idea and a terrific card!
