Holiday Place Cards
by Jennifer Svare

Placecard_2

Hello!  I am so excited that the holidays are officially here!  Place cards have always been one of my favorite things to make because not only do they help guests find their places, but they also add such a nice touch to the table decor.  A little note or poem for each guest could be added inside, or they can be left blank.  We personally draw names for Christmas gift giving after Thanksgiving dinner, so these place cards can also double as the name drawing cards.

The dies easily cut through two sheets of paper which was perfect for my assembly line.

I love the versatility the Classic Cottage die!  The dishes I am using have little red houses and barns on them, so the way the die allows for different colors allowed me to make a perfect match the plates.

When Poppystamps came out with the Tree Trunks die, I was so excited to see the small size which was perfect for this business card size design. It was hard for me not to add a skyline in the back, or a snowbank... but that is also the beauty of this die!  It allowed me to create many of these very quickly, and still look beautiful.  I "let the dies do the work..." ~ thank you, Poppystamps!  :)

I think the most difficult choice for the entire project was where to put the name.  In the end, I chose not to cover the beautiful trees and I wrote each name across the door.  My name was the longest, and it fit just fine!  

Let the holidays begin... and here's to letting the dies do the work this holiday season.  :)  More info (and maybe even a bonus idea) in the video below.  

Have a great day, and Happy Thanksgiving!

This is exactly why I follow blogs...to get wonderful ideas. Love your project today.

These are wonderful! xxx

VERY SWEET! I LOVE this little scene you've created! It is ALWAYS NICE to see something we can use on our Thanksgiving Table! Thank you, Jennifer! ;) HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Jennifer, These name cards are fabulous and you have definitely got a production line going here, a genius idea. I'm looking forward to watching your video.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

The place cards are very original and beautiful, not something that would be found in a store. The names written on the door, is a way to welcome your guest to come into a very special dinner gathering. The Tree Trunks die, I have been looking for a smaller tree trunks die, I did not realize that this was a small die. All the dies I have found are too big for the background I want, now I know.
This is why I visit inspiring creative blogs everyday!
Thank you for sharing today.
Happy Thanksgiving!
