Well, hello there! Today I bring you a couple ideas for the upcoming Thanksgiving using stamps and dies from the new Waffle Flower Crafts Fall release. As you already know, I love bright bold colors, but lately fall-ish colors have been growing on me. A lot. And here's proof:
My first project is a card with Holiday Labels: Give Thanks stamp set. I started adhering some burlap patterned paper to the card base. It looks super realistic! Next, I stamped the sentiment (minus the little flowers on top), leaves, flower/acorn cap and stem on a cardstock panel and trimmed it with craft knife and scissors, so the leaves would hang out.
I accented the stems with gold stickles and added rustic twine here and there. Oh, I also sponged ink on the edges. An existential crisis happened when photogtaphing this card. I used my usual setting (pics above), and also placing it on an envelope and taking the pic from a flat perspective.
It came out darker, though. Which one do you prefer?
You have to die cut the label twice for each place card and adhere them together at the top. I also had an epiphany with project: the big polka dot tag/circle image from Holiday Labels: Give Thanks fits perfectly on the label, leaving a blank line for the sentiment, or for writing your guest's name. How cool is that? :)
I finished each place card with a fork heat embossed in gold and a tiny embroidery floss bow.
Oh, and here's a trick for making them stand perfectly: just trim the bottom of the back flap of the place card.
Aaaaand I'm done for today! Thanks for visiting and happy wekend :)
