Hello everyone! I'm back for Day 2 as a Guest Designer and having oh so much fun!! So yesterday we started with a cute centerpiece for the Thanksgiving dinner table. Today, I have some neat place cards for you and your guests.
Whether you are having an elegant dinner or tons of silly fun, or if you are a family that has an "adult" table and a "kiddie" table - then these two ideas should be perfect. Let's talk about the "adult" place cards first.
These gorgeous monograms are cut with the brand new Folk Art Festival ~ Cricut Cartridge. And the beautiful fall leaves are cut with the Thanksgiving ~ Cricut Cartridge. The cardstock for the place card base is from Recollections. The pretty patterned papers are from the Simple Stories ~ Harvest Lane Collection. And the brown cardstock for the shadow layer is from Bazzill.
I used pop dots behind the monograms to add dimension. To stamp the names, I used the alphabets stamps in the My Creative Time ~ Anyday BINGO & Crossword stamp set. The ink is brown ~ Technique Tuesday Ink. I didn't add any other embellishments because I thought these were simply beautiful just like this.
Now for the "kiddie" table:
Don't you just love these little cuties??? The scarecrows are cut from the Simply Scarecrow ~ Cricut Cartridge. The cardstock for their outfits are from the Simple Stories ~ Harvest Lane Collection and the Bo Bunny ~ Double Dots Collection. And their cute little faces are from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ The Cornies Face Assortment.
I used a white ~ Sakura Gelly Roll Pen for their eyes and added a touch of chalk for their cheeks. For some extra bling, I added a few gems from my stash and a flower to his hat above. I used pop dots behind both scarecrows for more dimension. The leaves were once again cut from the Thanksgiving ~ Cricut Cartridge. I just snipped off a couple to have them separate rather than the whole bunch. And the names were once again stamped with the My Creative Time ~ Anyday BINGO & Crossword stamp set.
I hope you like them. It's hard to pick a favorite, but I think I'm a little partial to the cutie patootie scarecrows! :)
Ok everyone, how about a giveaway? Or how about two giveaways?!? Since it's Thanksgiving next week, I have the Simply Scarecrow ~ Cricut Cartridge & the My Creative Time ~ Piles of Smiles stamp set to give away! Woot! Woot!
