Hello everyone, welcome back to day two of my patriotic tablescape series. Today I am going to share a second element of my tablescape, the placecards. I used two cartridges to to create the placecards - Ribbons & Rosettes and Stand & Salute.
The placecards were fun to create. To be so simple looking they really involved several step. I used Cricut Craft Room and welded together a card and border from Stand and Salute. I cut the base card in navy cardstock. Using my paper trimmer, I cut red rectangles and affixed them inside the tent fold card behind the stars.
I used Ribbons & Rosettes to create the cute little patriotic striped rosettes. I added navy circles to the center of the rosettes and affixed a fire cracker to the middle of each rosette. I added gold Stickles to the fuse of the fire cracker. Using glue dots I affixed the rosettes to the upper right corner of the place cards.
I used an oval paper punch and punched out the the white name ovals. I then used a Close to My Heart alphabet stamp set to stamp the names onto the ovals. The stamp set is called Type Face and retails for $6.95. And like every other stamp in the Close to My Heart line, this stamp is part of the June Customer Special - Buy 2 stamp sets, Get 1 stamp set FREE!
Remember the large rosette in yesterday's centerpiece? I used the negative star cuts from the panels to embellish the placecards!! I added small dots of glue to the center of the stars and affixed the tiny striped stars to over the navy stars. I also added a star under each name.
I will be back tomorrow with details on the last element of my Independence Day tablescape, the menus. Thanks for stopping by today!!
