Simply Stationery

I decided to make some Monogrammed Notecards for my Godmother, Evelyn, who lives in Cumbria & is one of the very few people I still correspond with in the old fashion way lol....

I've kept it quite simple, making my own background paper in her favourite colour, purple.

Recipe (PTI unless otherwise stated): Stamps - Simply Stationery, Guide Lines Two, Fresh Alphabet, Borders Corners Square & Boxes Bags Tags / Cardstock & Ink Pads - Lavender Moon, Plum Pudding & True Black / Ribbon - Luxe Satin Plum Pudding / Other - SU! Punches

Initially, I wanted to decorate the envelopes to match (with seals etc.) & showcase them in a fancy box (using a Lauren Meader template), but alas time restraints got in the way!
Hope you're having a lovely Bank Holiday weekend & thanks so much for stopping by :)
Love Stephanie xxx

Hi Steph,

Beautiful! Steph you're a bad influence on me - I think now I need a guidelines set as that background is lovely!
I love correspondance the good ol' fashioned way - way more exciting! Your Godmother is one lucky lady!
Hope you're having a fab bank holiday yourself!
