Monogram Gift Card Sets

Good morning! Today is Sabrina's last day of Kindergarten, and the song that I have stuck in my head starts like this "There's a 104 days of Summer Vacation, and school comes along just to end it..." {you'll know the tune if you've seen Phineas and Ferb}.

These are the gifts that Sabrina will give to her teachers, para aides and school therapists. I made a set of 6 monogram cards for each of them. I used the American Crafts Everyday patterned papers again -- I just love the colors as they are bold and fun! I wanted to keep these "mail friendly" {i.e. one 1st class postage stamp}, so I didn't go crazy with the embellishments. I did use foam tape to pop up the monogram circle and embossed the lower cardstock strip for some texture.

Thanks for stopping by!
