Hiding In My Craft Room Challenge #68 - Die Cuts

Happy Saturday!

This week with Hiding In My Craft Room is for Challenge #68 to make something with Die Cuts.

So, with Thanksgiving coming up soon I decided to make a place card for the Table.

I used Cricut Cartridges...

Art Philosophy for the little Flag
Autumn Celebrations to cut out the card itself then with the same cartridge I used one of the Cricut Gel Pens and let my Cricut draw out the front design.

I placed a Thanksgiving themed printed paper in the background of the front of the card.

I took a Rich Cocoa Ink Pad and inked the edges of the flag, Stamped a name on the front crumbled it up a bit to give attached it to the corner of the card and added an orange gem.

Now I just need to make several more for everyone that will be at Thanksgiving Dinner.

I will also have everyone at Thanksgiving Dinner to write inside their place card what they are Thankful for.
