Leaf Monogram Frame into Love Card with the FREE design of the Week



Love card by Janet Packer (CraftingQuine) made with Silhouette free design of the week - Leaf Monogram

Hiya, I'm LOVING setting myself the challenge of making a quick card with each of the free designs of the week from the Silhouette store. This week's is a Leaf Monogram Frame which I've turned into a letter card.




Method:
  • I utilised the Silhouette's Print and Cut feature and added an offset cut line to each of the frames and placed a letter in each one using a font I already had installed on my computer.
  • The letter frames were printed onto 300gsm card along with the registration marks and cut out with the Silhouette. They were adhered with dimensional tape on to a rounded rectangle shape filled with the same colour as the frames. 
  • This was my first time using this lovely smooth printable cardstock which arrived today from Anna Marie Designs. I'm very impressed as this weight of cardstock usually gets stuck in my printer and I have to use a lighter weight card. I was also impressed with the (not so) little free gift of some lovely glimmery paper - thank you Anna Marie! Did I say - the card was on special offer at 29% off too! 
  • The background rectangle was mounted on to a card base made from the full width of another piece of A4 300gsm cardstock. 
  • That's it, card made!

What I used:
  • 2 Sheets of printable cardstock (300gsm from Anna Marie Designs)
  • Printer
  • Silhouette Cameo
  • Adhesive
Yes, that was all!




This card design could be adjusted to accommodate a name (it it isn't too long) or some other neat message. Not just for monograms then!
