Table Settings

The big day is almost here for most of you! We'll be doing ours later once again this year to accomodate my husband's work schedule. He usually is flying on all the holidays so we just celebrate either earlier or later.
This is one set of my placecards and napkin rings for my holiday table. I'm slowly getting them done! They were cased from Jerri Jiminez on her blog " A touch of grace". She does outstanding work and mine don't hold a candle to hers but at least I tried. They were made with brass stencils that were embossed on ivory cardstock through my Big Shot machine. I then took some Holiday Garden tapestry stamps and stamped the flowers. I then used a glue pen to apply glitter to everything, one color at a time. The centers are cut out with nesties and then popped up with dimensionals. I cut some individual flowers and leaves to put on the center circle. The edges are all outlined with a gold metallic pen. There are gold metallic beads in the centers of flowers and a few metallic BowEasy bows on the sides. Very elegant but not easy and not quick!!! Hope you have a wonderful last few days before Christmas!
