  • Today I’m going to share a favorite project of mine, and that is a set of personalized cards (for myself)!

    This is a boxed set of 6 monogrammed cards. Always a perfect and thoughtful gift idea for everyone!

    Since it’s my birthday I thought this would be a nice little gift for myself. Now when I need to send a quick note I have something on hand, and it can be for any occasion.

    Last month we released a super fun box called Card Cover-Up ©. While it has MANY possible uses, its primary purpose was to gift and hold cards, so I used it today.

    Upon designing that box I fell in love with the angle of the top, and felt that having a coordinating card cut file would be the ultimate package, so I designed the NEW! Cover-Up a Card cut file!

    The card is on the right, the box of cards on the left.

    Available in PDF, SVG, GSD, DXF, WPC

    Completed Project Size:

    4 1/4 Inch Wide

    5 1/2 Inches Tall

    This cut file is a unique way to “cover up” a card! Instead of your traditional envelope you have a elegant slip in style “cover” to dress up the presentation for every occasion. This would make a gorgeous Wedding invitation, or a stunning monogram note card set!

    This card/envelope combination was designed to coordinate with the Card Cover-Up Template, but can be presented in any of our amazing Pretty Packaging Templates, or used all on it’s own!

    I used the label from the  Fine Finish © set, to create and customize some monogram cards for myself! A great birthday gift to me 😀 

    You can see I digitally colored, and printed the label which I had typed my initials on, then cut the card insert layer. It looks stunning in real life.

    Here you can see the detailed bottm, which the white part of the card slips into, much like a fancy edged envelope. I printed out my Dainty Damask © pattern for the bottom of my slip-in envelope. I just added a bow and flower for some more dainty details 😀

    So there you have it! A quick, fun and personalized set of cards, presented perfectly for an amazing gift!

    The best part about working with the digital images is you design ONCE and can get so many, you can then SAVE your work, and then with a click of a button you can change the color and have a whole new set! AMAZING!!!
