I Made it Myself-- Monogrammed Notecards

I've been making quite a few of these monogrammed notecards lately. I really love the look of them and they are super quick and easy!

This notecard is a has a top fold and is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 so it will fit in an invitation size envelope.

All products used were from Stampin' UP.

Stamp set: Lovely Letters
Ink: Classic Basic Black
Paper: So Saffron, Basic Black, and Whisper White
Designer Paper: Designer Series Paper in So Saffron (what I used is no longer available but this has a very similar pattern)
Accessories: Scallop punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, black grosgrain ribbon, Scallop edge punch

These smaller notecards measure 3 X 3 and fit in the mini square envelopes.

I used most of the same materials but omitted the ribbon and the scallop edge punch. I substituted Rose Red papers.

I really enjoy making these monogrammed cards for quick, yet personal, gifts. My only question...which would you prefer to receive--your first initial or your last?

Care to participate in I Made it Myself this week? Read through the FAQs and then add your post below!


  1. I didn't make anything this week (unless you count a research paper about ethnography and the representation of "othered" cultures in 19th century museums, and I'm sure you'll thank me for not sharing THAT with you), but your notecards make me WISH I had. They're super-classy! I love the combination of black and sophisticated pastels/lights.

    I would prefer to receive my first initial, but not for any logical reason so I don't think my vote should count. I think my first initial is a better-looking letter than my last initial (T). Silly, no? Also, my last name is different from my husband's, and that might be a consideration for some recipients, although I can't think of a good reason why. I'm really no help at all, am I.

  2. I think my first initial for a personal gift.
