Give Thanks



Good Tuesday Morning Peeps! Hope you all are enjoying your day.

Today I am sharing a card and a place card. I made these with Thanksgiving in mind. We are not really formal type people, but I do love to dress up the table for Thanksgiving dinner. I had just gotten this hostess set "Holiday Best" and when looking at it I thought the "Give Thanks" stamp would be perfect for the place cards I wanted to make.

The place card is 4 by 3 inches. The base is soft suede and the DS paper is from the Autumn Traditions DS paper. I stamped the main image onto white card stock. I inked it up with soft suede, ruby red, old olive and more mustard. I hand wrote the name, but before I make more of these and use them for Thanksgiving I need to find a pretty font and print them out. I added a mini library clip and a bow.

The card is made with the same colors and I just changed the layout up a bit. I added some vintage brads to it.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
