Thanksgiving Place Cards

Every year we host Thanksgiving. I always enjoy decorating the table, and thought I would make some pretty place cards.

I used Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, and Old Olive cardstock for my colors. I stamped the pumpkin image which is from a retired Stampin Up set called Harvest Hello that I found on Ebay : ) I colored the image in with Copic markers, and cut it out. I punched a 1 1/4 inch circle out of Very Vanilla and distressed it with some brown ink. I punched the scalloped circle with the SU Scallop Circle punch and used a little 1/16" Circle Punch to punch little holes all the way around. I adhered the circle to the scalloped circle, and then popped the pumpkins up using foam squares. I printed out everyone's names on the computer using Edwardian Script font and cut them out. The Chocolate Chip panel is dry embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. I added brads to the 2 corners, and a spiral clip to the top left corner with some ribbon. The base is the Pumpkin Pie. I hope you like them, and thanks for stopping by!

Oh these are sooo nice, Kerri!

I have a Cuttlebug coming from my husband for Christmas - can't wait; and I need to learn how to do that distressing thing that you did around the edges. I love the little spiral clippy things you have up there.

These are going to be so pretty on your Thanksgiving table - hope you post that!
