Make it Your Own: Simple and Sweet

Hi!   It is Charlotte here from A Little Bit of Detail.  I am thrilled to be here as a part of the Sassy Design Team.  First, a byg THANK YOU to Sheila for the invitation and another big THANK YOU to Sheila hosting our second card party.  Oh, how I wish you all could have been there.  It was great fun, food , and fellowship.  And I went home with a boatload of new cards!!

Last month I made  monogram cards for two dear friends.  It was so much fun, and gave me a chance to really look closer at all the fonts on the Cricut cartridges.  Well, one that really stole my heart is from the Elegant Cake cartridge.  It is so pretty and yet not too fussy. 

I decided to make some monogram cards for myself.  Here is one of them.
I really do not think the photo does it justice.  This is just a simple little A2 cards with a pretty background mat from K&Co.  I created the border with a coordinating paper and a Martha Stewart border punch.  It is topped with a little lace for texture.   The mat and border are both inked in gold and bronze.  The initial is cut from the Elegant Cake cartridge and also inked a little in gold and bronze.  I added a sweet little gem to complete the card. 

Most of the time I over indulge in layers and elements on the cards I make.  However, there are times that I like to keep it simple.  As it is said sometimes  less is more.  I hope it is true with this card.  Please drop by A Little bit of Detail often.  I just love having company. 

Have a Super Sassy Day!!
