I'm really lovin' the large monograms that have been posted recently, but I can't justify the cost - so I had to improvise! Used the 'puter to create a "B" outline in Times New Roman, printed onto Bordering Blue C/S, stamped with Canvas and Background Basics and cut out. Not bad...a little more work, but a whole lot cheaper!!

would have fooled me!! Thanks for the "how to"! You could put this is the Friday challenge "do I really need this set?" It is a beautiful card! I am saving in faves for my future niece/nephew.... due in April! TFS!

Awesome idea. I agree; $17 a letter is way too expensive. I plan to try your idea this weekend. Oh and I love the card. The colors are great. That is my favorite backgroud stamp and that patterned paper is pretty too. TFS.

Just "ooooing.... and aaahhhhhing" here!
(confession) I am just SO beyond 'baby' stage, that baby cards for me are like 'guy' cards. I can't stand making them!
THIS is SUCH an awesome and refreshing spin on a baby card!!!
