Have you ever been to a party where they have place cards?  I love this little detail even if it’s just a casual event.  It’s a way to make people feel they have a special place and they are welcome to the table.  Why not try this for a kids’ birthday party?

For today’s project, I made some easy place cards using the Sizzix Sweet Treats die and embossing folder along with Avery Elle’s Modern Calligraphy stamp set.

I started off by embossing some white 2 ¾”x 4 ¼” cardstock panels with the embossing folder and trimming about ¼” inch off the top and bottom.

I cut various colors of cardstock down to 4 ¼”x 5 ½” and scored them down the middle at 2 ¾” with my Scor Buddy.

I adhered the embossed panels to the colored cards using my Creative Station adhesive machine.  This ensures you get adhesive end to end and it holds really well.

For the cupcake wrappers, I used some silver cardstock to cut out the wrapper die included in the set.  I backed it with more silver cardstock that I cut out so there would not be any openings.

I used the same colored cardstock to die cut the cupcake tops.  I added a little bit of tape to the backs to hold the cut out pieces in place.

For extra sparkle and shine, I dipped each cupcake top in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Ranger Holographic embossing powder.  For the chocolate top, I just used Ranger clear embossing powder.

For personalization, I used the Avery Elle Modern Calligraphy stamp set along with my WRMK Precision Press to stamp names in black ink.

I assembled the cupcakes onto the cards along with the names that I trimmed out for an easy and cute table decoration.

A little something extra to add to the birthday table!  I love how the holographic embossing powder makes the “frosting” sparkle.  Adding a little thank you note to the inside would be a great added touch as well.  Thanks so much for joining me today.
