Family Placecards

These are the placecards that I created for our family Thanksgiving dinner. Altogether I made 16 of them - my hand was aching after turning the crank on my Epic Six machine for the embossing on so much chocolate cardstock and then using my Quickutz Sqeeuze to cut out all the fall leaves! I added detail to the leaves and the name labels by inking the edges with chalk ink and also finished the edges with a small scalloped punch.

Here's a close up. This one is slightly different because I used a Hero Arts leaf stamp and colored it in with my Prismacolors. After doing that with one, I went with inking the punched out leaves on the others as I was short on time!

Thanks for dropping in!
