Monogram Gift Sets

I'm working on some monogram sets for Christmas gifts, so I thought I'd share a few with you. I think I have 5 of 12 sets done so far. I won't bore you with all of them, but here are a just a couple. I'm trying to make them all different, but that may get challenging as I get more done. I'm also trying to keep them fairly flat, i.e. no brads, bows, dimensionals, etc. (another challenge for me), but I don't want the recipient to have to worry about extra postage. Each set will have 4 matching cards and will be enclosed in a clear box.

Both of the cards use the Stitched background. On the first, I stamped it with Chocolate Chip on Baja Breeze. The monogram was done with the JustRite wooden stamp kit.

The second card uses my favorite combo for the Stitched background, Whisper White on Basic Black. The monogram was also done with the JustRite stamp, and then I added one of the circles from Papertrey's Monogram set around it before punching it out. The green accent is Stampin' Up!'s new Kiwi Kiss. I really like how it looks with the black and white.

Thanks for looking!
