FTTC137–Set the Table

Hello everyone~

Hope your place is cooler than my place…I don’t know where the cool fall days went but I’d love to see them come back!! At least I can feel the fall season with my creation ;)

It’s time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC137)! Tammy is challenging us to make something for *a holiday table setting*. Please visit Flourishes Blog for more information about the challenge. Looking forward to seeing your creation!!

 

To be honest, I had never made anything for a table setting before…not even a place card! I had some ideas and things I wanted to do for the challenge but those ideas are getting bigger in my head and they were getting overwhelming…So, I decided to get some inspirations from SCS Resources and I found a tutorial of triangle box. I thought it would be a cute box to put mints or chocolates in for each guest. Then I decided to make a matching place card and napkin ring.

I used a new stamp set, A Season of Thanks set for the place/tent card. The image was colored with Copic markers. The stamp from Country Charm Labels was used for the name plate (Kim is my daughter’s name). The inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment, “a note of Thanksgiving” so that I can leave *thank you* message for my guests :) I also used the retired stamp, Autumn Flourishes for the all projects.

This has been submitted to CR84FN Color Challenge 39 (CR84FN39).
