Festive Place Cards


Hello! It's Product Spotlight Day at DeNami Design, and today we're featuring the festive and whimsical cornucopia image! SOOOO perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday!!!! And...it's on sale for TEN PERCENT OFF this week! YAY!!!

I decided to use this image as the focal point on some place cards:

I stamped the image with Rich Cocoa Memento ink, colored it in with Copic Sketch Markers, and cut it out. I paper pieced the little apple with patterned paper and added bling to the grapes. I then mounted the embellished image onto a die-cut circle and a die-cut doily and adhered the entire focal point to a 4"x5" piece of kraft cardstock that was folded in half. I tied some twine around the place card, added a button, and wrote the names in a brown fine tip marker.


These were so easy and fun to create! And I think they would make a beautiful addition to any Thanksgiving table setting!

You could also use this same layout and change up the stamped image and color combo to fit any holiday or special occasion!

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to check out the DeNami Design Blog for more inspiration from my fellow DT gals and our Guest Designer, Tammy!!!
