Caardvarks Initial Reaction Challenge

The current challenge at Caardvarks is to make a monogram-themed card. I had a few ideas for this challenge, and here's my first card--

I used my Cricut machine to draw the "S" on cardboard using these neat little markers I purchased. You replace the blade with the marker and can draw the designs. I decided to do that so I didn't destroy my blade trying to cut cardboard. I cut the "S" out by hand and spraypainted it with regular old silver spraypaint then added some ribbons. The snowflakes are $1 Michael's stamps from last year and are stamped in white ink (although it looks kind of silver/gray on the black cardstock). The "Let is Snow" sentiment is Stampabilities. I have another idea for a monogrammed Christmas card I hope to complete, but I wanted to get this one posted before I lost track of time and missed the deadline. Thanks for looking!


  1. i LOVE your monogram card--especially that bold and gorgeous silver, black & white color scheme! ...HOWEVER...here in new jersey, IT ACTUALLY DID SNOW yesterday morning and i've a feeling this is why! ...so i'm TOTALLY hoping your second card will be "S" for "sunshine"...or perhaps "U" for "unseasonably warm"!!!!!! :)

  2. i love your card. it's so gorgeous!!!
