|Hello Friends, How are you this weekend?? Are you getting ready for Thanksgiving? I have been wanting to find a chunk of time to create some place cards for the Thanksgiving table & I finally found that time. Of course you can switch up the colors and use this design for any occasion :)|
|I have to show you how they look with some mood lighting so you can see the pretty sparkle.|
|This was the first one I created...my proto type and I wasn't happy because it was a little to much stamping, to much ribbon etc... etc.|
|This is the simplified version. What do you think?? I like the way the off center ribbon label looks.|
Just in case you are interested I have a tutorial for you & the supply list is at the bottom of my post.
|Type your names and run your colored paper through your printer allowing space to die cut each name. If I measured I could have print all the names on one sheet of paper.|
|Die cut your names placing the label slightly off center on the die. Tape the die cut down with something like architectural dots. (I like them because I can use them over and over.)|
|Thread your ribbon while it's still on the spool and it will be easier to steady it while you gather the ribbon. Tie the ribbon with the embroidery floss into a bow.|
|I find it easier to work in batches. I will be trimming the left end of the "Ribbon Label". Here is a card using the ribbon label.|
|Using "Label's Eight" die cut your card base and score it to fold in half.|
|Die cut the next size that's smaller, stamp and distress. (see supply list for stamps, inks etc.)|
|Cut in half.|
|Attach your distressed piece....I like to use Glossy Accents as my glue.|
|Spray everything with shimmer spray. |
If you celebrate Thanksgiving good luck as you make your preparations and have a wonderful weekend. Thanks for taking the time to visit. Hugs, Kathy
