Thanksgiving Place Card Frame

Good Morning, Stampers!

I came across a this little wedding place card frame while shopping at my favorite dollar store this past week. I thought it would be fun to incorporate the idea into a Fall theme for my Thanksgiving table.

Stampin' Up! has beautiful gold inks, papers and embellishments that made it so easy to put together!

 

I began by tracing the front and inside of the frame to the 
backside of the Gold Foil paper and cut it out.


After cutting the entire piece out, I embossed it
using the Zig Zag embossing folder and adhered 
it to the frame using Multi-Purpose Liquid glue.




Stamp the large leaf in Encore Gold Metallic onto Very Vanilla cardstock and Cut. 
Adhere to theframe with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Stamp the acorns using Crumb Cake and Early Espresso markers. Cut.
Cut a yellow leaf from the Color Me Autumn DSP.
Stamp the sentiment onto Very Vanilla cardstock using Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso               inks. Cut. Adhere the pieces to the frame using Stampin' Dimensioanls.
Cut a piece of DSP to insert into the frame.
Cut the letters from Early Espresso cardstock using the
Sizzix Little Letters framelits.
Add a little Autumn Wooden embellishment and attach with a 
Gold Baker's Twine bow using a glue dot.

Paper: Very Vanilla, Gold Foil, Early Espresso, Color Me Autumn DSP

Several of my local downline and I got together last night to create the adorable Halloween Frightful Wreath from page 37 of the Holiday Mini Catalog. What a great time - take a peek!



The wreaths turned out ADORABLE!
 Each one of them were given their own personal twist:

Linda's

Roxie's

Barb's

MaryLou's

Mine

and last but not least - Tammy's!
(she will finish her's at home - lol!)

Would you like to see how easy the wreath is put together?
