Monogram Notepad (Frosted Designs Cardstock Only Challenge)

This week at Frosted Designs, the challenge is to use colored cardstock only (no patterned paper).  Sounds easy?  I thought so too!!!  

I decided to make a note pad for me (for a change) and had a hard time with the design that would use all solid colored cardstock.  Here is what I finally came up with!

I put a 3x5 rectangle on Layer 2 of my Gypsy so I knew how to size my letters.  On Layer 1 I put several "L"s within the 3x5 rectangle.  
In the center is Creative Memories Reminisce Accents (Monogram Shift Lock)  sized to 1.59 inches.
From top to bottom, left to right:
CM Storks Delivery (LC) sized to 1 inch
Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art (UC) sized to 1.82 inches
Paper Lace 2 (UC) sized to 1 inch
Rock Star (UC) sized to 1 inch
Songbird (LC) sized to 1 inch
Paper Lace (LC) sized to 1 inch
Sans Serif (UC) rotated 90 degrees sized to .80 inches
Quarter Note (UC) sized to 1 inch
Pooh Font Set (UC) sized to 1 inch

I welded the letters all together.

I cut it out of purple cardstock.

I put the design on a 3x5 piece of green cardstock.  I lowered the design so when I punched the holes at the top I would not punch through it.  I cut out a 3 1/8 x 5 1/8 piece of chipboard and purple cardstock for my cover.  The top of my cover looked a little bare so I added some purple ribbon and green twine.

I used my ATG gun to adhere the cover.  I used my Bind-It-All to complete the note pad.  I have a tutorial HERE for making note pads with the Bind-It-All.  I use blank 3x5 notecards for my paper.

I am delighted to design for Frosted Designs!   I hope you consider entering our challenge this week!!
