Thanksgiving Place Cards using the Avery Elle Card Easel Dies


Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me today. Today’s project is in preparation for Thanksgiving dinner. My husband is in the Air Force and it’s seldom that we get to go to our home towns for the holidays. A few years back we started inviting other Air Force couples and families to have Thanksgiving dinner with us. I thought I’d make it a little more special this year by adding place cards to decorate our table


photo-oct-15-2-37-28-pm I started out by using inexpensive Kraft notecards. I cut the note cards down to 5.5 in. wide by 3 tall. Using the WeRMemory Keepers Next Level Woven Embossing Folders, I embossed the notecards to add the amazing woven, basket weave texture. I cut the easel base onto the backside of the place card using the Avery Elle Card Easel Dies. This makes displaying cards or in this case setting up the place cards quick and easy.







Next, I used the Hero Arts Grateful Leaves Layering Stamps to create clusters of leaves for each card. On the beautiful maple leaf,  I stamped the second layer (the leaves’ veins) with Versamark ink, covered it with Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder and heat set them all.  I used a gold Sharpie marker to add all of the names to strips of heavy vellum, and then added those to the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid pieces.

I’ve attached a video below with more details on this project! Thanks again for hanging out with me today!

Until next time 😉
