Let me show what I made. I decided to make a simple and practical (hopefully) gift - monogrammed cards. 



I started with Samantha Walker "Thank You" card from the Silhouette Online Store. That's how the design looked like when I opened it in the software.


I ungrouped it  and deleted everything except three scrolled labels. I cut the label with leaves from green cardstock, the label in the center from white cardstock and the label on the right from patterned paper.


I layered three labels on top of each other, slipped 0.5" strip of paper  through the slots and added a stamped monogram.





 I made few more cards, added the enveloped and wrapped them with twine.

  I think Miss Reeve will love them.

  18. Beautiful cards! How could I pick a favorite cutting image? Guess it would have to be a flower or simple flourish because I probably use those the most. Leslie
