Happy Thanksgiving!

So our second challenge was to create a Thanksgiving invitation as well as some table items to go along with it.  I chose to use the Pilgrim Pets cling set (1125QCL).  

Here are the place cards I made.  Simple enough to put together if you need to make tons of them.  I stamped the images on craft colored cardstock in brown ink.  Then layered the images up, added a bow, and small name banners on the bottom.

As for the invitation I stamped the pets and colored them with colored pencils.  Added some layers and some doodads to finish it off.  When I send invites I usually make them the size of a regular card 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" but only one side so it doesn't open.  Then I just print my party info and adhere it to the back side.  

Happy Crafty!

Love all the layers and doodads on the invite Amy and the cute little animals stamped on the kraft cardstock are perfect for mass-producing place tags for each person at a large Thanksgiving dinner. Great job!
