Cartridge Exploration- Mini Monograms
This weeks cart. exploration was for Mini Monograms or New Arrival over at the Chirper Challenge. I made this for a friends baby shower using Mini Monograms scalloped circles and scalloped squares cut at 5 1/2 then I used the letters I needed and cut them out. Some of them are not like they would be in the booklet, some of the letters are certain shapes and I didn't plan it well in the beginning so I had to first cut the letter I wanted and then in the back you can cut the shape only so I used that and it worked perfectly. If you try that idea you will have to FIRST write down where your blade is at BEFORE you hit CUT, if you try this after you hit cut then you wont know where to line your blade up again and you might get the letter off center. I used Nana's Kids stack from DCWV, petalsoft from Bazzill, and some misc. green I had from Costco. I also used some Prima flowers and some jewels for the centers of the flowers. I also traced around the letters with a black pen so they would "pop" a little more. Another girl put it all together with the ribbon and tulle. I think it turned out really cute, thanks for looking!
