Another Scalloped Monogram Card (by request)

A blog reader asked in the comments to my last post if there was another card which had the scallop edge since she does not have the New Arrival cartridge. I couldn't think of one off the top of my head but I realized that I could design another version of the card using only Plantin Schoolbook - so I did....

I test cut this version using a two sided card stock - the effect is pleasant when you see the contrasting side of the paper on the scalloped edge so you may want to give this a try - just make sure that it is a good weight of paper to be sturdy enough for a card.

Here you can see the inside of the card with the liner.

I missed taking a photo of the scoring of the card for my last post so I have added one here. When you use the ScorPal and need an increment other than one-half inch you use the extra measurements in the top left and right corners to make the necessary adjustment. Here I have the card front edge aligned at the 1/4 inch mark so that when I score on the 8 inch mark I will have a score line 3 3/4 inches from the edge. Works like a charm!

One more test cut - in another solid cardstock - the letters I used for these are also from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.

So now I suppose more of you will be able to make these note cards. Have fun making these in many variations - I'd love to see some of them!

Monogram Notecard with Scalloped Edge - Plantin Schoolbook only


  1. Thanks Susan! It is with an "S" as well so i didn't have to ask how to do it with an S.


  2. Thanks for this design. This with the matching box would make a wonderful teacher gift.

  3. I love your work! I left an award on my blog for you. Thank you for inspiring me!

  4. Thank you so much for doing this in Plantin. My last name starts with an S, so I suppose I can use this also! And I have a great friend whose name is Sue and would make a great set of cards for her.

  5. I love all of these cards. But I don't have either of these carts. :( Can it be done in George?


  6. Your work is fabulous as always - thank you for being so generous. If I can get anywhere with the customer service department at Cricut and get my Design Studio re activated, I'll be trying these note cards - they are a fabulous idea!

  7. Hi Nicole!

    Yes - it can be done in George and I did it for you!

    I'll be posting the file a little later tonight - after I take the photos and upload.
