More Monogram

stampin up demonstrator zoe tant
As a child I was always disappointed to discover that 'Z' or 'Zoe' didn't feature in the manufacture of mugs, keyrings or necklaces with initials or names.  As I've matured (some would not agree!) I've got less disappointed, partly through a lesser desire to have a mug or whatever with my name on, but also when the moment does take me Zoë is a more popular name these days and there are other names starting with Z.  However that said I thought I'd give the Less is More challenge another go and use my initial for some clean and simple thank you notes.
Baroque Motives is such an adaptable stamp set with this lovely flourish and it looks fab in basic blace with a few rhinestone accents.  The initial is from Broadsheet Alphabet which is great for projects like this because each letter has it's own special design and although different to the other letters in the set it goes.....!  I've also matted the 'z' onto basic black and whisper white cardstock to add definition to the monogram.
Simple elegance exudes with a finishing touch of basic black satin ribbon and rhinestones on the monogram block.

Have a great day!

  1. Gorgeous Zoe. I had the same problem when I was young as all the Lynne`s were spelt without the E. Now we are as common as muck lol.
