A is for ...

I like the idea of monogram cards as I think that they really personalise the card.  I made this one just really starting with the first letter of the alphabet and that I also have friends with this initial.    Again, it is a really quick card to make with very little whitework or cutouts.This is one of the quicker parchment cards to make.

This was traced with gold ink and coloured with dorso crayons behind the monogram and Perga Color Exclusive for the pattern and between the patterns on the edging.  The colouring was put on the reverse side of the parchment paper and also the embossing of the edging. 

Then, using a two hole tool, I pierced around the edging of the card - except for the spine - and cut the excess away to form the edging.
