I created two place cards that could be used for my Thanksgiving table this year. The first place card was inspired by an amazing 3-D pumpkin that I noticed on SCS.
The pumpkin is created by punching 4 wide ovals out of Pumpkin Pie Designer Print Paper included in the Hostess Print Pack. The ovals are folded in half, adhered together and then to the card. The name was printed on vellum cardstock using my ink jet printer. To hide the adhesive on the vellum, the vellum is actually wrapped around the Pumpkin Pie Designer Print cardstock and adhered on the back. It makes quite an impression.
After much deliberation, I decided that I wanted something that tied all of the colors together a little better. I also found the perfect 'extra piece' for my place setting and I really needed to use a circle motif to really make it flow.
So simplicity ruled the day. I used some of the Autumn Vine Designer Series Paper as the main background. I then added concentric circles to play up the colors that I used for my napkin rings. Add the monogram of the guest and it is complete.
My 'tablescape' is coming together! See the final product and my secret 'extra piece' on Thursday. Until Tuesday...
