Thanksgiving - Part 2

Thanksgiving Place Cards
Last Friday was my first Thanksgiving post....
today I am continuing with that same theme.
The images I used are from a set called Friends Feast Together that is available at Scrapping With Lisa Designs a division of Sunsational Stamps.  These are the cutting files that are included SVG, PDF, JPEG, PNG, EPS and DXF.  I used my Cricut Explore to cut out the images.  You can also get a similar one as a digi stamp at Sunsational Stamps.  There is a banner that says "Friends Feast Together" that comes with this but I didn't use it.

These place cards are easel cards and an adorable way to dress up your Thanksgiving table and make each person feel special.   I cut out the images using my Cricut Explore, but you could use other cutting machines such as the Cameo or Silhouette...or you can even cut them by hand.  I used my Sizzix Scalloped Circle die to cut the three parts of the easel card.  Just like last week, I used a TCW 6x6 Mini Wood Grain  template and "Gathered Twigs" Distress Ink to add the wood grain look of the background.  The labels that were used for the names are attached with the adhesive foam squares to hold the easel card open.   I made them using Paper Artist cutting dies from "9 Tiny Tags & Little Labels" by Hot Off The Press.  I inked the edges with "Gathered Twigs" Distress Ink, and wrote the names with "Gathered Twigs" Distress Markers.

So now that I have shown you what the images look like as a single layer, I am going to show you what they would look like layered....I'm just showing one.

I layered this the same way I do stamped images.....printed out more than one copy and then cut out the parts I want to layer.  To see more on this just look at last weeks post "Thanksgiving - Part 1".  BUT....since these images come with SVG files and more, the layers are already available to you.

Here is a picture that includes last weeks project, a napkin holder, so you can see how the set comes together
