The 24 Days of Crafting Christmas - Day Three

...on the Third day of Christmas, my crafter gave to me, three notecard sets...
Well, my words aren't the same as the standard Christmas song, but I DID manage to make another set of handmade Christmas gifts.  This time I was crafting for my co-workers, and I thought they could all use a set of monogrammed notecards.  It's really easy to make, as all you need are: cardstock for the card bases, patterned papers for the card face (I matched the papers to the prsonalities), alpha letters (I used Baroque Alphabet stamp set by CTMH) and some ink (I used Copics).  The cards are clean and simple (CAS), and look great.  However, I realized that the packaging was just as important as the gifts, so I had to come up with some creative containers.  I made an extra monogram for each set, so I could then place each on the package, which leads to minimal embellishing (phew!)
I made a set of ten cards for each person, and a Christmas card to go with each checks them off of my crafting to-do list for the season!  Besides a few more paper crafts, I have some machine sewing to do, and I haven't brought out the Singer for almost a year, so cross your fingers that my next project will go smoothly!!
