During the holidays we all are pressed for time and often the one thing we don’t get done are cards for the holiday. This year, don’t let that be the case. You can create this beautiful card in a short amount of time and place it on your Thanksgiving table to mark your guests’ spots and after the meal is done they can take it with them and have a card to remember the fun of the holiday.

Supplies Used:

Start by cutting a 6″ x 5″ piece of green cardstock and folding it in half. Next, take the leaf punch and punch through both the front and back sides of the paper. This will allow the pattern of your card to be enjoyed from both sides of the table.

Place the Border Mini Stamps on the acrylic block and tape of the sections that you do not want to stamp with the packaging tape. I suggest packaging tape because of its larger size that will cover a larger area of the stamp. Ink the section of the stamp that is not covered. Once it has been inked remove the tape to avoid ink being transferred where you do not want it on your project. This technique is often referred to as “masking” or “stamp masking”. If you would like your pattern on both sides you can repeat the masking steps for the back side, too.

Now trim 2 pieces of 4 ½” x 5″ gourd patterned paper from the Halloween and Fall Paper Pad and adhere that using your favorite tape runner to the insides of your piece of cardstock, making sure to line up some of the design to show through the punched leaf area. After you have done that, cut a piece of the green cardstock to 9 ½” x 5″ and fold it in half. Then, adhere that to the inside of the card to cover the blank side of the patterned paper. On the inside of the card, stamp the Thanksgiving sentiment using the Black Soot Ink and Expressions Mini Stamp on the acrylic block.

You now have a place card for your table that your family member can take home to enjoy. If you will be needing a lot of them, take a night before the holiday and cut out all of the pieces you will be needing and quickly stamp and put them together or invite some friends or family over ahead of time to help you make them. You will have them done in no time and will have had a lot of fun making them. Isn’t that what the holidays are all about… having a fun time with family and friends?
