PSA Essentials & BasicGrey Blog Hop - Monogram Stationery Set

Welcome to the PSA Essentials & Basic Grey blog hop! If you're coming by via Keisha Campbell you're on the right track. If not make sure you start at the beginning over at Basic Grey so you don't miss any amazing projects.

I am a bit too early but I like to plan and create my handmade presents as soon as ideas come to mind. This is my sweet little stationery set for my Mom. I haven't seen here in a long time so I will be sending a small care package for Mother's Day this year.

I prepared two sets of cards using the BasicGrey Little Black Dress paper set. I started by preparing the circle tags and stamped the monogram and created doily accents for layering. I stamped my mother's initial using PSA Essentials Peel & Stick Archive stamp set.

I also used the decorative strips of paper with the adhesive back. I also trimmed strips of black/brown from the BasicGrey Little Black Dress paper pad collection for the darker set.  

I added more layers to the design by adding some BasicGrey Little Black Dress flower stickers to the stationery set.

Here's the second set. Both sets turned out great!

I also used the lace to add more dimension to my card design. I just love the vintage feel and the designs blends really well.

I also added my brand new "handmade with love" stamp and it simply adds a sweet finish to every card.

Wrapped each set with natural twine.

I also selected a chocolate brown envelope to match my cards. I am sending my Mom her very first embosser from PSA Essentials. I embossed the flap of the envelope to complete the project.

Sweet and simple handmade gift. This project didn't take that long at all.
