Christmas Place Cards

I think beautifully set Christmas tables are one of the most wonderful elements Christmas celebrations. There isn't much that can compare to food and fellowship around a common table at Christmas. For my Heartfelt Creations project this week, I've made Christmas Place Cards which might adorn the most traditional table.


I created a set of 4 place cards using Poinsettia Ornament 2 and Petite Poinsettia Sets and these card were created in the same manner as the place cards I made in this blog post.



I stamped the poinsettias and ornaments on coordinating red pattern paper from the Noel Collection by Bo Bunny - their traditional Christmas paper collection from last year. I love the mottled look of this paper!




I used the Decorative Window Die for the place card base and cut the name 'plate' using petite oval nestabilities. Further instructions are available on the Heartfelt Creations blog along with many other inspired projects by the rest of the Heartfelt Creations design team!

Wow! Such elaborate details on these place cards. Most people will have a card with their guests names printed on. Your place cards will surely make any guest feel special.
