Over on the Cards blog the challenge is to create Thanksgiving place cards. I drew my inspiration from my fall centerpiece on my kitchen table. I love the warm colors and the stained glass panels. You should see that thing glow in the evening with the candle lit. So comforting.
For my place card, I used Illustrator to draw my leaf, then printed it onto cardstock and cut it out. I did some sponging around the edges to give it that variegated color and then added some faux stiching around the edges as well. To finish, I wrote in the name with an SU! stampin write marker and added a button. Super simple! (and now I have a leaf template that I can print in any size or color I want! ;o) Bonus)
