The Holiday crafting season has begun! Today I am making some pretty place cards that would be perfect for your holiday table!Supplies Used:
- Essentials – Christmas Buildables – Christmas Double Banner – 1754E
- Essentials Mini Blender Brush Set
- Craft Perfect- Kraft Brown Card
- Super Trimmer
- Nuvo Embellishment Mousse- Orange Blush
- Nuvo Embellishment Mousse- Spring green
- Nuvo Embellishment Mousse- Indian gold
- Nuvo Mousse and Paste Palette Knife
Using the Super Trimmer, trim cardstock down to 4 by 6 inches and fold to create place cards that measure 3 by 4 inches. This size is perfect to work with!
Place stencil onto card front and center into position. Using the brush apply a thin (or thick!) layer of embellishment mousse. I like to generally apply a thin layer, this dries so fast and yet adds the right touch of shimmer to the card.
You could also alternately use the palette knife to apply the mousse over the stencil. This will give more of a mixed media look and texture to the place cards.
Mix and match your mousse colors to create the perfect color scheme for your party!
I love how simple it is to add a touch of texture and shine to these cards with the mousse + stencil action.
For the names, I die cut banner shapes using the Christmas banner die set and then lettered my guest’s name onto that. The banner shape makes the place card look so special!
And that’s it! The place cards are ready for your party with friends or family!
