Place Setting Cards


Having heard most of my life that I need to wear a name tag to distinguish myself from my identical twin sister, I'm not one to do a lot with projects that identify names. But...the newest set from Practicing Creativity Designs has this awesome panel that was perfect for a place setting card!


This is so super easy to do! Stamp the panel image on cardstock and score the top edge, being careful to avoid the raised circle portion. Trim the panel on the two sides and bottom. Trim around the circle portion only and fold. I've added embossing, glitter strips and bling for a bit of shine to match the plates I've had since my college days.

The rest of the gals (Paulina, Courtney and Dana) have some super projects to show you as well from this release, and both sets are available at midnight!

The cobalt color is so fun to work with, as seen by the latest Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World! I knew there was a reason that I liked cobalt blue dishes! (Thanks Brandi!)


Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (White) Georgia Pacific
Stamps: (Everyday Prints) Practicing Creativity Designs, (Mom from Roses in Bloom) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Ink: (Night of Navy, Ballet Blue Pigment) SU, (Onyx Black) Versafine, (Watermark) Versamark
Embellishments: (Snow Glitter) Martha Stewart, (Rhinestone) Prima

  18. Fab. Did you and your sister wear matching clothes? Is that why you needed a name tag? Love the blue. I've been looking at the ocean and marveling at all the colors it can come in... some this color, some teal, some green....
