Monograms, Argyle, and Bunting

One of my most favorite cousins got married about a month ago, and I told him that I would make them up some thank you cards that they could use after the wedding.  I had a design in mind that would go similarly with the save the date card they sent out: brown and teal argyle pattern.  My original design was just to be printed out flat on the note card, but my husband didn't really like it and thought it might be boring and suggested doing paper layers instead of a printed color border.  Now why didn't I think of that?

So the end result is a mix of both.  I layered chocolate stock under the printed card, which orginally was going to have a teal paper layer with the text on top of that, but then it ended up looking too busy.  I'm happy with the end result, and love the fact that I can do these in any color combination that someone comes up with, and the monogram can actually be any text requested.  More here.

I also spent some more time working with bunting, which was a mild obsession there for a minute.  I used a color palatte from another bookmark I created and turned it into a save the date card, which I think is quite adorable.

Hand-cut and sewed by me!  I tried it with and without a backing layer.  I listed it without but have been waffling on whether to list it with instead.  I'm not sure which I like better.  If you have a preference, let me know!  You can check out more of these cards here.


  1. Cute! I think I might need to order some of those cards with bunting to send as thank you's as soon as I run out of the plaid ones! (hopefully that will be soon!)

  2. Awesome! I'm glad that you like them! :) I hope you run out soon, too- that's good business!
